The fucking farmers walk

Why did no one ever tell me about the farmer's walk? This shit is so based. It is such an easy exercise but I really feel it throughout the whole body, it's fantastic. All up the arms, my traps and shoulders, my core.

I think I am gonna complete every session I do from now on by just farmers walking until failure. Fuck it. This shit rules.

    What sort of weight should one be doing for the farmers walk? or is it more about time

      It's about time. Or distance. I do mine based on distance and leave a minute rest tops between "sets"

      Bodyweight per hand is a good goal

      >It's about time. Or distance.
      Time as in quick or long? I prefer to do it for weight and speed.

        Time is usually about how long you can perform or hold an exercise, not how quickly you can give in to failure.

        Although if you do distance then how quickly you can cover that distance is a good use for trying to make old time records shorter. I'd do this method for them over trying to have longer and longer sets though personally because I do them in part for conditioning too.

      I walk a third of a mile on my treadmill at 3.1mph with 35lb plates in each hand as a warmup before lifting. Gets you nice and limber without overexerting yourself.

    Very based and functional exercise

    Load up one side for each rep as opposed to balancing out both hands for optimal stabilizer and posture gains

        For sure if you go too heavy just like most exercises. You should only load up whatever your grip can reasonably handle

          damn I need this then. I've got a womanly hourglass figure. Can I use dumbbells for it? I've got loadables that go up to about 50kg each, is that going to be too light to get effects?

              I don't want to, I know I look like shit right now, I don't need other people to point it out. I stay more motivated by just not looking at my body and staying the course (losing weight, lifting weights), since if I just focused on what I look like, I'd be depressed for the next year because realistically it's going to take at least that long of steady lifting to look halfway decent.

            Yeah dbs work fine. I've done it with a trap bar too. I prefer trap bar cuz I can load it better

              how much do you farmers walk compared to deadlift?

              • 1 month ago
                Anonymous

                About 40-60% of my 1rm. I do them in 6 minute intervals. Every minute on the minute I run as far as I can with them, stop, turn around, and repeat. Once the 6 minutes is up, that "set" is done. I never do more than 1-2 sets on the same day because they light me up.

      Loading one side is the patrician's move. It forces the opposite side to contract and strengthen, whereas balancing the load just squashes you down AND is less than what a deadlift is anyway. So its useless.

      Start with a 35 pound dumbell - go for a walk until some part of body gives out. Switch hands, turn around and walk back. progressively ,oad as needed.

      Just dont walk around with two fully loaded dumbells. Stupid.

    Can I do a light weight farmers carry on the treadmill for hypertrophy across my whole body?

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      Not really. Farmers aren't very good for hypertrophy. It's more of an isometric strength exercise for grip/forearms, upperback, posterior chain, etc. It's why people stress good range of motion on exercises for hypertrophy.

    I do them too, and but i walk like a drunk man lol
    I'm doing 2 reps with 10kg playe for probably 30m~ i'd say, then 2 at 20kg
    I'm doing them on socks since i have orthopedic insoles (flat feet), don't want to risk fucking them up with the added weight

      Your pic is fucking stupid. He should be activating his calves by walking on his toes. Do deadlifts if you want to activate arms and shoulders, fucking moron.

      Farmers walking backwards on your tip toes is the ultimate exercise. make sure you alternate which way you turn your head to look behind you to stay symmetrical

    Now wrap a hand towel around each kettle bell, grab the ends of the towel in each hand and try that.

    if you're just trying to get jacked and stacked there's better options (stimulus to fatigue wise). You'll find once you make some gains and start doing working sets above your bodyweight per hand you're totally spent and frequently ripping callouses.
