The Best Core Exercise You are Not Doing: The Single Arm Farmers Carry

The Single Arm Farmers carry is one of those exercises that truly does it all! This variation of the traditional exercise trains grip strength, the entire core, as well as getting in your steps and a bit of cardio. If you want to step this up a notch try going barefoot in order to get a better workout for the calves and feet!


Simple Set-Up:

  1. Grab a single dumbbell that will be a challenging weight for you

  2. March off 5-10 yds

  3. Walk back and forth until you complete 30-50 yds with 1 hand

  4. Repeat on the opposite side


Try 3-4 sets of 30-50 yds per hand


Pro Tips:

*I like going for a shorter distance with more trips back and forth as I believe more turns = more core work

*ensure that on one end you turn to your left and turn to your right on the opposite end

*keep the torso upright and the abs braced
