Farmer carries improve full body strength, stability, and coordination. To remain upright we have to brace our core and keep our shoulders pulled back in a stable position. Our grip and upper back strength will also improve and carry over to other pulling movements like deadlifting and rowing.
It’s important to stay under control – slow things down and walk with intent. Going slower will increase time under tension and improve work capacity.
To perform, grab a pair of kettlebells or dumbbells with proper technique.
Stand tall keeping you core braced. Pull your shoulders back and down with a slight bend in your arm (this activates our shoulder stabilizers).
Begin walking, remain as stable as possible. We want to control the weight not have the weight control us.
