The Farmer’s Carry is a staple exercise for us with all populations, both adults and athletes.
☑️Easy to perform well
☑️Hard to perform poorly
We typically program some type of carry 1-2x per week, performing 3 sets like we do with most everything else.
What we do different is program it by steps. Instead of asking someone to walk a certain distance, we ask them to walk a certain amount of steps. We do this because of different stride lengths, hoping that steps will get the same training effect for most people (think someone 5’0” versus someone 6’8” — the amount of steps it may take for these individuals to walk 20 yards could be completely different).
