Farmers Walk Exercise?

by Leonard Mendez
(El Centro, CA)

Can you provide more information on the Farmers Walk exercise?

Aaron's Answer…

Sure! I really like that exercise; it's simple and really blasts your forearms.

To do it, simply pick up the heaviest pair of dumbbells that you can and walk with them as far as possible. That's it.

Carry them 'till your grip breaks.

This is a very intense forearm exercise.

You can make it more difficult by increasing the weight, or finding dumbbells with larger diameter handles. If they're your own dumbbells, you can wrap the handles with duct tape (one or two strips at a time) to slowly increase the handle diameter yourself.

As an added bonus, tighten your shoulders back, up, and together when carrying them; this will really work your upper back and shoulders.

Be sure to keep good posture when doing this - if you hunch or twist, it's easy to hurt yourself. Also, be sure not to drop the dumbbells on your feet when putting them down.

I hope this helps!

I don't think farmers do need any exercises. They walk around the farm for so many hours and this is enough. bestessays com au review offers good information about exercises. Exercise helps to keep body and mind fresh.

Farmers do not need to do exercise separately. They just need to do their work. Their work requires almost all their body muscles to work at the same time. This will let them be it even at the age of 80. top gun fishing charters

"About 2 weeks ago I read all the ab strengthening stuff on your site because I decided I wanted to be strong, instead of having a lot of belly fat. So I started eating healthier, running, exercising, you name it - everything your site said to do to help. Now I am noticing a real difference! Thank you for making this. :D xD"

[This calorie calculator is] the most useful tool on the web that I can find… Also, I compared the calories calculated by your calculator to the calories calculated by the treadmill at my gym, and they're within a couple calories of each other, so yours is as accurate as we're going to get. REALLY AWESOME TOOL. I love it and depend on it. Thank you sooooo much for making this available."

Thank you very much, I was too lean before 2 years (55 Kgs), after the gym now I'm 72kgs, all the muscles have developed... when someone hand shakes with me it can be squeezed easily, they're making fun of me!
