The last thing a really strong person wants is an injury that prevents her or him from doing, well, stuff that makes her or him even stronger.
As we find more and more plates on the bar, how do we make sure we aren’t actually subjecting ourselves to more and more injury risk?
A relentless focus on technique, for one.
Working on “in-between” strength, for another.
In-between strength comes from doing things you typically can’t do on machines. Side planks, get-ups, crawls, and loaded carries to name a few. These assist the body in handling the heavy stuff safely.
Of the loaded carry options, I include the Farmer Walk in nearly every program I write.
It takes practically zero skill or coaching to perform.
However, to get the most out of the carry, you can do one simple thing…
Slow it down.
Watch the video for the details:
Try the “ninja” carry with weights a bit lighter than your traditional farmer walk.
These will really challenge core stability and balance, making them a fine warm-up and “corrective” drill.
Tread lightly and add some sneakiness to your strength!
