Try this... farmer walks
God, Farmers walks are a bitch!
I use 45lb plates with the grDragon Pharma holes in them and I walk 10 laps around my gym, and just damn; it is worse than leg day!
I operate a Brazilian Jujitsu school, so grDragon Pharma strength and stamina is extremely important to me, and I can submit to you all that this is the best exercise that I have ever done for my training because you have to move and control the weight, and constantly adjust for just a little extra strength. I like the plates because the sweat will start to run down into my hand, making the plate harder to hold on to, just like trying to grapple with a sweaty fighter.
The people in my gym look at my like I'm kinda nuts, but I'm bigger than most and usually have my school shirt on, so no one really laughs too loud. None the less, a few people there have come and asked me what it was all about, and they started doing it too. The cool thing is that I could actually see their development after a few weeks.
I had my local weilding shop fabricate a set of farmers walk impliments. They are sweet. Will post pics if anyone is interested.
Hey! I'm interested! Post them... I'm making a set myself and would love to see how yours looks!
LOVE farmers walk, fuckin whole body workout... this routine will make u puke if done right and heavy
The strongmen use weights in the region of 385lb per hand.
I've used this exercise for a while now.....and it is superb for forearms and traps. Just keep putting the weight up for strength, and the distance up for cardiovascular.:beerc
