CROSSFIT SUFFOLK: Powered By SPARTAN PERFORMANCE

May 19, 2015

This month’s challenge is the 100′ Farmers Walk for load and time.  The monthly challenge is an all-voluntary event, but it’s always a good time…and a good test.  We believe the Farmers Walk is one of the best exercises one can partake in.   And we are not alone in that belief…click HERE and HERE.  Loaded carries of any kind will always improve strength and they are useful for real life.  The Farmers Walk also has the added benefit of improving your grip strength.  And finally, for an exercise that yields excellent results there is nothing complicated about this movement.  You can use dumbbells, kettlebells, barbells and the Farmers Walk loadable handles to do the Farmers Walk.  You can work this into your post-workout training.  That was a hint…in case you didn’t catch it.  Some have already made this part of their steady routine…and it shows.

Kelly is up to a combined weight of 310 lbs. (155 lbs. in each hand) for the 100′ Farmers Walk!

    I guess we’re going to have to start reading the “notes” section on the whiteboard…that shits get tin’ funny

  10. George Reply

    John H.–Agreed! We need to keep it “ENTERtraining” John. There are no rules stating we can’t entertain each other in the spirit of training! Not to mention when I look back at my “notes” I want to have a laugh or in the very least, a smile. Reading, “I had to use 2 abmats for my handstand push-ups because I can’t go full-ROM” just isn’t fun at all, and nothing to smile about.

    YEAH JOHN!
