The Farmer's Carry is a really simple full body exercise. You will be working your biceps, triceps, forearms, upper back, trapezius, quadriceps, calves and core. In addition to this, you will improve your grip strength.

This exercise can be done with either Kettlebells or Dumbbells. We recommend selecting heavier weights than you would typically use.

Set yourself up with your weights either side of you. Reach down and pick them up ensuring you are keeping a flat back and bending at the knees. In your standing position ensure your shoulders are pushed back, your chest is pushed forwards and you have engaged into your core.

From here you can walk around the space you are working with, ensuring your shoulders stay back throughout. When you have finished, simply place the weights back down on the floor in the same way you picked them up ensuring that your back remains flat.
