If you get a chance get this book:Julie Havelk's Strongman Training - IRONGLADIATORS. It is a soup to nuts on how to train, eat, condition for strongman at any level. With or without implements.

That's a complex move, I've tried it a few times but don't yet feel comfortable with it so I tend to start my zerchers higher.

I was even thinking of filling a couple of garbage cans with stones and placing them on the ledge that separates my yard from my neighbors for atlas stones.

Strongman is a lot more than just static strength which you'd find in a PL or OL competition.
Absolutely, which is why with this schedule I'll moving weight 2 days a week. Another thing I need to see about doing is each event/approximation that I come up with on the same day for a few weeks before the contest so that I get past being exhausted from one event and moving into another.

I think that's where I thought of the "zercher deadlift" and I was even thinking of trying to place the bar on the rack pins to approximate setting a stone on a platform.

And this leads me into the reason for this thread... there is 1 gym in town that has some implements, but it costs $30 a month that I don't have for membership, and they said none of their "trainers" know how to use any of it anyways... so it would still be the blind leading the blind if I trained there. Hell, I could pay Brian Shaw whatever his astronomical training rate is and drive up to Ft. Lupton once a week, but again $30 a month is a problem. I'll ruminate on these ideas and see how a week of the schedule above goes. Thanks again, all.

One thing that might prepare you for the yoke, at least somewhat, is VERY heavy BB walkouts in the rack. The walkouts feel lighter than the actual yoke, and won't really prepare you for trying to run with that much weight, but its at least a start for having 600+ pounds on your back.

Also thought of just getting some tough rope and making a "rope yoke" with a BB, and hanging some plates off it. This also would be more similar to the chain yoke at the contest and if I can't hang with it I just have to lower the bar until the weights on the gound instead of trying to dump it wich is what scares me about just walking around with a loaded barbell.

Thats not a bad idea. If your gym has a fat bar or axle, use that on your back. The thickness of the bar adds a whole new level of strangeness the first time your do it, its more difficult to get it set against muscle instead of sitting on top of your spine.
