Using a trap bar instead of dumbbells lets you go as heavy as possible.

How to Do the Farmer’s Walk

1. Stand inside the trap bar with feet hip width. Bend your hips and grasp the handles. Deadlift the bar off the floor.

2. Tighten your core and draw your shoulders back. Walk as quickly as you can. Go for time or distance.

QUICK TIP:  Don’t allow the bar to tip forward or backward in your hands. Squeeze it to keep it level.

Did You Know? You can turn the trap bar sideways so the loading pegs face in front of and behind you, which is helpful if you don’t have a wide lane to walk in.
