    Default Farmer's Walk Articles and Protocols

    Got any? I am looking for some articles to improve my knowledge of the Farmer's Walk and workout protocols. Right now, I am doing a couple of timed sets after my presses. I do a couple of sets of 3:00 with 2 x 24's. Thanks.

    I like to do the farmers walk one arm at a time to make it harder.

    I've found Tabata Farmer Walks to be a very effective protocol.

    Default just a thought

    Granted, there are some great routines that FW in circuits and routines, and maybe I'm missing the tone of the question, but...

    Isn't this walking while carrying weights?

    There's long walks for grip stamina, frequent hand changes for grip strength, suitcase style, racked, shoulders, overhead. Still, how much programming does carrying stuff around really take?

    Again, maybe I'm missing a point. Please illuminate for me if that's the case.

    [SIZE=2] My thread "Guest User? Really" prompted some 6 pages of discussion on why Pavel's user account had been changed to "Guest User" status. John Du Cane answered in a forthright manner, and I thanked him for his professionalism in this very forum.

    That entire thread was removed from the forum on or around August 26. I've been an HKC and an active, outspoken member in good standing for some 3yrs now, but I don't support this sort of censorship. Look for me on the public web.

    I took my KB to work yesterday in order to w/o during my lunch. Had to carry it from car, up the stairs into the office and back. Forearms were pumped like mad! Simple.

    I don't know if this well help, but I've found that the best way to go about strongman-type training is to forget about a plan and just go out and have fun with it. Unless you have a specific goal, such as an actual strongman competition or you really need to improve your sprint for a certain distance so you drag a weighted sled for that specific distance, there really is no point in having a plan. Anything you do will be beneficial in terms of improving conditioning. With heavy weight, go shorter distances, with light weight, go longer. Incorporate stuff you see around you. If you see a big rock on the side of the road, put your KBs down, pick up the rock, carry it as far as you can, then sprint or jog back to your KBs. Farmers walk them to the rock, then go back and carry the rock some more. There's no limit to what you can do.

    My understanding is holding the KB, by the horns, at chest/heart level and pushing it forward/back with your arms horizontal and parallel with the ground.

    Hope that helps
