    Ever since I've started doing them, I have a strong urge to milk a cow.
    I shouldn't be around fat women anymore.

      If I wanted humour I'd ask about your one rep max. Please discuss the utility of the farmer's carry.

    I run a minimalist program so it's out for me. I get grip + core from DL and jogging 5K back and forth from the grocery store twice a week. Get the good handled bags and carry a roll of glass fiber reinforced tape to apply to the weak spots and there is no issue.

    I want to do these with a trap bar so fucking bad but I have no space in my basement. I just want that juicy forearms, traps and obliques workout aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

      Set up some cones in a figure 8 pattern and do your farmer’s carries around those.

    a fun and useful exercise, I like it and do it a couple of times a week. Bonus points if you can include stair climbing in your farmer's walk.

    What kind of weight should I be doing these with, about how long should I be able to walk without resting? Also, would doing one side at a time be better for oblique gains?

      Yes one side at a time is better for obliques and deep muscles of the back. Technically called a suitcase carry I think. Two hands allows for more weight, so it hits the forearms and traps better.

      >what weight
      heavy fucking shit, im talking like your deadlift 1 rep max
      >how long should I be able to walk without resting?
      if you can carry it for more than like 20 seconds then it means youre using babyweight and making no gains, just hop on a fucking treadmill
      >Also, would doing one side at a time be better for oblique gains?
      its ok but youd be better off doing 1 handed deadlifts

    >all these retards using baby weights for stupid distances
    Load up some farmers handles with your deadlift max and carry for a few sets of 15-20m.

      Reminds me when I was a delivery driver for Sherwin Williams. Sometimes I had to unload 64 buckets of paint/primer, walking on gravel or mud at construction sites, then pick up another load. My forearms were at their peak when I did that

      I find it strange how people do this inside a gym. Its a wagie exercise and I hate it. Carrying two fully loaded toolbags from a parking lot to site in the city, 1km walk and then up ten flights of stairs.

        I guess people would rather get the benefits of it in a controlled manner, without a balding, overweight man yelling at them to hurry up.
        Also aircon

      If you're not reaching failure within a 20-30sec set, it's baby weight.

    They’re great. I like to do them for longer, 60-90 seconds, so that I know that I’m using a manageable weight.

    I do them twice a week and it works pretty well. I fell for the “do forearms everyday” meme, but all that did was hurt my finger tendons.

    I pretend I'm carrying back maaaaassssiiivvveee buckets of milk from my barn to my family.
    Then while I rest I daydream about laying my head down on my wife's massive pillowy thighs and falling asleep.
    I've only gotten kicked out of one gym so far, im a sneaky fapper

    Dyel signal. Noobs do them because these get memed as a "super" move like barbell OHP. The only people actually big doing these are strongmen, who do much more than just farmer carries and even then they're doing it with over 200lbs in each hand, not with a 60lb dumbbell lmfao. I saw one guy claim taking the plate off a rack and walking with it was a farmer's carry.
