Thread: Farmers Walk

I did them for the first time 3 days ago after deadlifts and they were great.. i only used 90 lb dums and walked like 40 feet back and forth 2 times.. it was unbelievable hard. I barely was able to carry the dums to the finish... but i am doing this at least once a week because by forearms traps and shoulders are so sore from it that my legs actually feel good

I'm not allowed to do them inside my gym. I could have blown the dang place up when they told me that. So now I spit on the floor. Bastards.

I finish my trap workouts with these....grab the heaviest db's I can get my hands on and start walking.......I'll pace back and forth until my arms give out.....then I'll throw on straps and do it two more times.....my training partner hates it when I say we're doing farmer walks.
my next trick is I've got a sand bag and I'll heft it up on my shoulders and walk as far as I can then turn around and walk back.....something I read in one of my books....sounds like fun.

I love farmers walks. In an endurance period I do them between sets squats but I like to do them for 3 full rotations of about a 20-30 foot long (one way) space. I think turning around is an integral part of the exercise, sort of builds skill handling heavy weight while moving relatively quickly. Go with no straps, grip will always be the limiting factor in a farmer's walk. Grab the max dumbell you can hang on to.
