  • Farmer Carries

    So I've just signed up at a new gym and I now have access to legit strongman implements (Stones, Logs, Iron cross, Yoke walk, lions,tigers, bears oo my!!). I had a scheduled off day yesterday but went in and played around a little, ended up taking the Farmer carry handles for a few laps with 200 Lbs per hand, not W.S.M weight but me weighing 190 lbs soaking wet ill take it !. Holy hell I have never felt soreness in my traps, lats, biceps, forearms, calves (damn pretty much my whole body) ever in my life..

    My question is how what would be an intelligent/productive way to program these into my weekly routine?

    Current split is a Push/Pull/Legs- I start my week on Sunday hence my Pull 2 seeming to come before my Pull 1

    Mon- Push 1
    Tues- Legs
    Wed- Off/Active Recovery
    Thur- Pull 2
    Fri- Push 2
    Sat- Off/Active Recovery
    Sun- Pull 1

    Ive always just added in an extra day of 1 strongman type thing, but its easy since I do it at home. Mainly Farmers Walk, or Log since I own the implements.
    Maybe throw 1 of those in per week to replace something? Like Log on shoulder day, Stones on DL day? (Or similar)? Depends how strict you want to keep your current routine...

        Anyways, now that my shoulder is fairly healed "I cant stop training for a year to let it heal like Dr's tell me" so I try to make it better by daily shoulder band exercises.
        Working somewhat. I can bench a little bit now, (135), and I will push 225 if I use the sling-shot and EliteFTS Shoulder Saver pad. Its girl weight, but better than nothing I guess.

        On SAT's, I use this day to do "Strongman" type of stuff. (Finally) I got my Log from Titan in AUG and 2-days later I tore my rotator and could not use it.

        Today had a good (light) session, but it was fun and broke up the routine a bit.

        What I did:

        Log Press - Titan Fitness Log plus a 35 on each side. 5 sets of 3 reps (all starting from floor).

        Went outside, had a 50 pound plate on each side of a "Mike McDonald" bar. (Greatest bencher in History).

        Had the bar on a set of old York Stands setup in Driveway.
        Also had light Farmers Walk Handles (Titan Fitness) just 50 lbs on each one near stands.

        So I did 5 circuits of:

        Again:


        Log Press - Titan Fitness Log plus a 35 on each side. 5 sets of 3 reps (all starting from floor).

        Big-Mac bar on my back, walked up the hill on my side street, came back down, racked bar, grabbed Farmers handles, walked back up to same turn-around point (neighbors mailbox) came back.

        Did that 5-times. For an older guy, with calcified arteries (trying to reverse it if possible) chest was burning.

        Went back inside gym, grabbed a 40-pound York Round-Head D-Bell. And just practiced very light "Circus Dumbbell" press w/ each arm.
        Ridiculously light of course in left arm, but need to tread carefully with torn right arm. Hoping one day I can press heavy again if/when fully healed.
        (5x5 each arm for these).

        It was a fun session anyways...
