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.

    Glad to see someone else complete this, it is not easy to hold for 400 meters. Nice job. by AndyWeaver on 9/3/2012 6:37:19 AM

  • profile pic Thanks Worthster. This site has been motivating and is largely responsible for me getting in upper body shape. Since joining nearly 2 years ago when I could do 3 pull ups, I lost 30 pounds of fat and then gained 15 pounds of muscle all without setting foot in a gym. You have been a great motivator as I try and keep up, Ged as well. Dont see myself catching you but do want to continue to incense my strength and keep exercising fun. by AndyWeaver on 6/10/2012 8:48:00 PM

  • profile pic Awesome challenge Andy and great video. i need to set some time aside to do this. Your progress on here is amazing - I'm really going to have to step my game up to get near your scores. You look destined for the number 1 spot! by Worthster on 6/10/2012 10:42:00 AM

  • profile pic Good luck Phil. I want to work up to full body weight for 400m but I really start to lose grip the last. 50 meters with this weight. I might create a shorter body weight Farmers walk or make it longest distance covered while carrying body weight. by AndyWeaver on 6/7/2012 3:28:00 PM

    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 by AndyWeaver on 6/1/2012 3:25:23 PM
