I had a lumber yard job where I had to carry cases and kegs of nails about 60yds severly times a day as well as loading lumber.
I had a job building a railroad tie staircase up a 600 vert.ft. hillside. All the materials had to be carried. After the staircase was built we had to carry compound buckets of gravel and stone to fill it. We did it from the top down.
Those summers I didn't lift and probably had the most dramatic change in my strength and physique in my life.
