    Default 1-handed farmer's walk

    I have seen some posts regarding the 1-handed farmers walk and grip strength. How would that exercise be for core stabilization? Any ideas what core muscles are being challenged while doing the 1-handed farmer's walk (i.e. quadratus lumborum)?

    Thanks

    Pretty much all of them on the opposite side. It doesnt really matter which precise muscles, think of functionality.

    I've been doing these for the past 7-8 weeks and they have become one of my favorite drills. You can feel your whole body tensing as you walk, and it's great for grip strength. I use a barbell, I think its the best.

    We do them daily. We call them Suitcase Walks and I think they have great value for all my athletes. I don't EVER say an exercise builds this or builds that, but, over time, I see the value of a lift (or I don't. Then, I don't use it...million dollar secret)
