Walk This Way 2016
Don’t just pick stuff up and put it down. Channel your inner strength and move it from A to B, far and fast with the farmer’s carry.
Do It: Three steps to a perfect carry, plus a brutal workout.
- To start, grab the center of the loaded farmer’s handles (or two 45-pound plates, kettelbells, or dumbbells) with a flat back, heels down, chin neutral, and arms fully extended.
- Deadlift the weights and keep your arms extended. Drop your shoulders and avoid shrugging while you walk.
- Move as quickly as possible from Point A to Point B. try to walk smoothly but move with purpose.
The Workout: Every minute on the minute (EMOM) for 15 minutes: 50-foot farmer’s carry, no drops allowed during the carry. Load each handle with 50 percent of your body weight or use dumbbells or kettlebells.
