Farmers walk

Just wondering. How hard does farmers walk hit the legs? or is it more of a back and grip killer?

    Depends on the weight and your own strengths. for me the grip goes first but I'm working on it.

    To start off I got a railway sleeper (£16) cut it in half and fitted handles to it, each side weight 51kg. As I got better I added weight to pins I'd fitted to the sleeper. I now use a sleeper in each hand and add weight to that but given the length of the sleepers turning can be difficult but its still a cheap option.

    Go to my web site and follow the lnks to see some attempts at homemade equipment.

    It saps your body as a whole, but ultimately it's usually the grip that gives way first. The next day I feel it most in my upper back. Doesn't hit legs really hard, but hits them more if you train on a slope!

    Great exercise!

    Call it £50 and there yours - there 40kg empty with 1" loading pins!

    could also make a deal if you want to buy some plates to load it with?
