Over the weekend, some friends and I lifted an approximately twenty-foot, 805 lb. steel beam, moved it about thirty yards, and then used a chain hoist to raise it up about nine feet.

We were helping my parents rebuild their house in the aftermath of last October's flooding, and this big steel beam is the new main structural support beam for their kitchen.
Thanks to the Workhorse Gym, friends, neighbors, and McBeal from F3Columbia for the assistance!
That's how you lift.
