Kettlebell Farmers Walk 400m

Kettlebell Farmers Walk 400m

Step one, map out a 400 meter or 1/4 mile course. Could be a local track or in my case a 50 meter out and back in the parking lot to try and get it on video. Step 2 get two kettlebells that total at least half your body weight. I am 165lbs so two 50lb kettlebells=100lbs and well over half my body weight. Step 3: pick up one kettlebell in each hand and go.

    Inspired my memories of Magnus Ver Magnusson on Wolrds Strongest Man competition doing this. He went shorter distance....of course it was 5x the weight. But he was about twice my weight. First attempt 3:07, second 3:01, 3rd 2:49, happy to break 3 minutes.

    AndyWeaver: Thanks Ged. I remember Phil and most of the main competitors from all the reruns on tv. Magnus had by far the best name for a strongman, just sounds like a beast and he lived up to it in his heyday. I am going to buy two 40kg kettlebells and work
    GedMustoNumber1: Great effort Andy...You very much remind me of a certain Phil Pfister who represented the USA with pride...Magnusson was a legend!!!..i'm more of a Brian Jacks man from the old Superstars, check out his amazing dips videos, awesome and a great physiq

Here's what you need to do to take part:

Step one, map out a 400 meter or 1/4 mile course. Could be a local track or in my case a 50 meter out and back in the parking lot to try and get it on video.

Step 2 get two kettlebells that total at least half your body weight. I am 165lbs so two 50lb kettlebells=100lbs and well over half my body weight.

Step 3: pick up one kettlebell in each hand and go.

You can stop walking but you cannot regrip and set the weight down, that is all part of the challenge. It's not a huge weight but for 400 meters you should feel the burn as they say.

This is a time based challenge so the fastest 400 meters wins.

Enjoy the suffering. Good trapezius workout.
