My New Toy – Farmer’s Walk Handles

by Kilo on May 4, 2011

Last night I came home to find a pair of heavy-duty farmer’s walk handles sitting on the porch. A gift from Ryan Pitts and Stronger Grip Enterprises. Take a look:

They are as solid as they look, and twice as fun at least.

So what does someone do with these monsters? Last night I spent about half an hour working on suitcase deadlifts and loaded carries. Basically, you pick them up and walk with them.

I worked in ranges from 165/wide to 225/side. When I saw them I asked myself “I wonder how far I should walk or how many reps I should do?”

After a couple of steps I knew the answer. Heavy walks are one of the most productive exercises I have ever done. If you want stronger traps, a more powerful grip, or you are just worried that your arms aren’t long enough, I recommend getting a pair.

Ryan hasn’t offered them to the masses yet, but I know he will. They’re too good not to.
