    Farmers Walk with Olympic Bar

    Hi

    I'm trying to come up with a few different exercises to do at my Mrs studio, for mainly legs and thought of a Farmer Walk as I have a long walk to use. I have an Olympic Bar and could load this up and just walk with this, I'm guessing it may be a little difficult to walk properly carrying a bar in front of me. Would it be better on my back in a squat position? Is this exercise actually worth doing?

    Might be a bit awkward with heavy weight on the bar. You could try walking lunges (bar on back) if you want to mainly target legs through a walking-type exercise.

    I wouldn't do any sort of farmers walk with something heavy on my back. I did have an epiphany Saturday evening. I was carrying 50 pound bags of pool filter sand from my truck to my pool filter. I cradled the 50 pound sacks in front of me on my chest when carrying them. My thoughts were "This would be a good exercise, it's like a farmer's walk." It may seem like I'm overly cautious, but 15 days ago my water pipes were frozen and in order to have my morning coffee I had to use toilet water.

    As far as legs go these would not be a good leg/quad builder.
    These though help your endurance strength and carrying weight for a distance.
    Across your shoulders its loaded carry.
    The advise with walking lunges from above^^^ would be a better alternative.
    You can even start without weight then add dumbbells as you get stronger.
    A side note here doing a suitcase walk (one hand farmers walk on your side)can be a good core builder as well as grip endurance.

    I wouldn't do it with a barbell on my back. Very easy for things to really go south. Go with dumbbells in the front rack position.
    I can tell time. Time cannot tell me.

    Formerly LactoseTolerant. I'm not very imaginative.

    That is really disgusting, Paul.

    If you have two triceps bars, you're golden. Simply grab them on the outside edge and carry them.

    you could get farmer walk handles and do it the right way )))). Walking lunges are good (great actually). Other things to consider - sled pulls and pushes, suitcase carries and anything with a sandbag. Since we're avoiding gyms until we get the vaccine my son and I are doing work with sand bags. We have one with 150lbs of sand in it, the other we can vary the weight (up to about 80 lbs I think). Lifting those things off the floor repeatedly is good torture, so is lifting them from the waist to the shoulder, letting it down to the waist and lifting to the other shoulder. Want more fun? Press them overhead. Want even more fun lift a sandbag to your chin while in a squat and then explode out and toss the sandbag (great for shotput training) into the air. Many ways to torture yourself.

    That pretty much sums up how every day of mine goes. If it's not one unpleasant thing it's another. Stepping in dog poo, having a flat tire or a dead battery, finding a dead animal in my yard, the list goes on. Heck, there is a big black garbage bag stuck in the top of a tree in my yard since last April.

    I'm going to guess it already took aggressive negotiations for OP just to get his Olympic bb and plates into his wife's work studio.
