Benefits of Practicing Loaded Carries

Why you should pick heavy things up and put them down again: carrying edition


When I talk about not just doing crunches as core work, this is not NOT what I mean 😉


Load carrying is a phenomenal full body exercise that challenges core stability AND BONUS: grip strength!


Plus it’s really freaking applicable to life (like when you’re proving a point by carrying all the groceries in on one trip 💪)


BASICS:

  • Load carrying exercises are foremost: really dope and productive for core strength. They are also stellar for upper and lower body strength.

  • Carrying exercises will translate to better performance in other exercises because they create head-to-toe tension, creating a strong mind-body connection.

  • They improve grip strength, which means being able to lift MORE.


PROGRAMMING TIP:

  • Add lighter carries to the top of your workout for a warmup, or

  • Add heavier carries to the end as a finisher

If you've been sleeping on carries, think again!
