In this part 1 video, I show you how to do a farmer’s carry with dumbbells or kettlebells. I love to incorporate farmer’s walk in my workout and in my classes at Fit4Females because this exercise activates nearly every muscle group in your body! Who doesn’t love an exercise that targets your whole body quickly? More efficient and better results in less time. Grab some gear and let’s get started. I will be sharing the Part 2 workout shortly so come back to the blog or get notified here.
Farmer’s Carry with Dumbbells or Kettlebells – part 1
Core – ABS
Train your core without crunches. Farmer’s carry will hit your six pack hard because your back and abdomen have to work double time to keep you upright. Your core braces and stabilizes your entire body so it’s time to ramp up your training with Farmer’s walk.
Arms and Grip Strength
It will also help with grip strength in your hands, your wrists and forearms and great for improving your posture if you remember to keep your chest and shoulders up back and down.
Legs and Glutes
Your legs are going to feel like jelly underneath you. You are hitting every muscle in your body with this exercise so let’s get to it. Really squeeze your glutes and press your feet into the ground.
How to Do a Farmer’s Carry with Dumbbells or Kettlebells – Part 1
Grab yourself a dumbbell or kettlebell. You can do this movement as a single arm carry or double arm carry. Progress slowly as you build up strength. You can head outdoors or you can perform Farmer’s Carry walk indoors.
Farmer’s Carry Tips
- Choose either single arm or both hands gripping the kettlebell or dumbbell
- Walk the dumbbell or kettlebell with chest up, shoulders back and down and core tights
- Try to go as heavy as you can: I find my grip strength gives up before my body
