Odd object lifting

I just tried car pushing tonight and i love it. I have sort of messed around with other little odd object type things such as filling a wheel barrow with stones and pushing it up a hill and clean and pressing stones and throwing stones and things like that. Does anyone else have some good odd object lifts/movements i should try?

    Sandbags are supposed to be good. Shoot for something around 100lbs to start off.

    Barrels are popular too, they can be filled with water and/or sand.

    I just stick to Zercher squats and stones myself.

    hmm, ic. Do you do like an actual routine between gym days or do you just do odd object every once in a while. Is it a good idea to add odd object in with a gym routine like HIT?

    I know i'd struggle big time if did HIT training and specific strength in the same session!
    Try some plate swings with 25kg plates,or single handed dumbell bench press.
    Try getting an old punch bag,fill it with sand, maybe up to about 220lb,try wrestling about with this and try carrying it about.It will give you a REAL killer workout,with real functional strength.

    A great cheap way is to buy a bunch of 25kg (55lb) bags of sand, (cheap anywhere!) then tape some of them up together to make a blob, this costs next to nothing and you can make blobs of almost any weight and almost any size or shape!
    Lift them and enjoy
