The asymmetrical farmer’s walk builds the core and the grip.
HOW TO DO IT FARMER’S WALK
- Place one heavy dumbbell and one lighter one on the floor. Bend your hips back and grip the dumbbells. Carefully deadlift them off the floor so you’re standing tall.
- Walk as quickly as you can as far as you can while keeping your torso upright and braced. Switch the dumbbells on the next set so the opposite side gets worked with the heavier weight.
DID YOU KNOW?
Holding uneven dumbbells forces your core to fight the tendency to tip over or twist to one side. As with any farmer’s walk, you’re also training your grip as well as your lower body and your heart.
Choose dumbbells that aren’t too different in weight. There shouldn’t be more than a 20-pound discrepancy between them.
