The Farmers Walk Handles is an extremely versatile fitness training equipment that can easily be worked into fundamental exercise programs for great strengthening results. The Farmers Walk is also an effective workout for fat burning and total body movement workouts. Target your grip, core and your lower body. RAGE Farmers Walk Handles are made with a 2″ steel tube and will work with plates and bumpers. The 1″ handle will feel great in your hands by locking it into place; the balance is more equally distributed for stable movements. 13″ of space to be loaded on both ends. There is 30″ of working space, which is ample for long strides and running, without having your knees contacting the bumper plates. The finish is Black Zinc for indoor and outdoor use. The total length is 57″. Straps collars are included (standard Olympic bar collars do not match). Sold as a pair.
Jeremy: Jeremy and Evan here with Rage Fitness going over 2 Minutes of Technique. We are going to cover the Rage Farmer Carry Handles and their basic functions. So, the Farmer Carry Handles that we make here at Rage has 13 inches of loadable space. So, you can get up to three height sum bumpers on one side. These bars are just a little bit smaller than a standard 2-inch Olympic bar. So regular colors will not clump it down so we include one of this Rage bar sharp color. The bar sharp color simply works Velcro sliding it on, hold it in place and that won’t go anywhere. Also, we have 30 inches of workable space in here. You can walk, you can stride out, you can run and you don’t have to worry about your knees hitting the front legs hitting the back. The way we’ve designed the handle here we’ve spread out the load a little bit for stability. Whenever you get a short handle with the Farmer Carry Bar you get a little bit of a tilt, sometimes depending on where you grip it. This actually spreads out the load enough where it keeps it a little more sable for you. Evan: This comes from the standard strongman competition. When you are lifting these up you want to make sure you keep your feet right underneath just like he has, not too wide, not too narrow. He’s got his back nice and flat. His shoulders are pulled back so he can go ahead and pick it up start walking forward. One thing when you pick it up you want to make sure you pick it all the way up before you start moving. All right, he is going to go ahead and set it down. And the next standard movement we can do is just a suitcase carry. On the suitcase carry you are just going to pick one handle up, all right. This is really going to work [inaudible 00:01:48] it’s going to hit the bleaks on this side real hard because obviously the way it’s just on one side it’s going to want to pull you down. He can just stand there he can walk with it which is going to make another added dimension even tougher. He can walk out; try to turn around when you are just swinging with one on one side. Obviously that gets difficult, you have to stop it when you come back. If you’ve never done the Farmer’s Carry before it will be a lot more than doing a squat or anything like that. It’s a total body movement. The next day you might not even want to get out of bed.

Jeremy Christofferson: Jeremy and Evan with Rage Fitness going over 2 Minutes of Technique. Now we are going to go over the Versatility or the Rage Farmer’s Carry Handle. Evan here is going to step in and he is going to demonstrate an upright row with just the handle. He gets it at about 18 inches off the ground, what you see in a normal power lifting type of a dead lift. He can flip the handle down and use the fat bar alone, do another upright row, really works on the grip. He can go out wide and do a bend-over row using just the fat bar part of it. Now, he is going to demonstrate with the handle the [inaudible 00:00:53] exploding your hips every time. You can even do that with the fat bar as well. And not only that just with the handles alone you can turn this into your own circuit training crossfit workout. You can use these as stick jumps so you can rotate back and forth. Another movement Evan can do with the fat bar here he can go into a pushup position and really work on stabilizing with his core and his shoulders all stabilize the muscles as the bar is going to keep moving. So it makes it a little more difficult just to do a standard pushup. Evan Lynam: Another movement we can do at the Farmer’s Carry Handle we could do hip thrust and basically when we add in the bar is going to give us away the hip thrust. I’m going to have Jeremy here demonstrate, maybe you’ve just started out, maybe it’s in your garage, whatever you got going on for workouts and you don’t have the money for a good ham raise, because what we are looking to do here is we are really trying to hit our glutes. We are trying to take the hamstrings out of it. All right, so with his bent leg he shortens that hamstring out. He is really going to hit the glutes. He goes up and down just like that. Now another thing that you can do to add a little more dimension to it, make it a little bit tougher is you can get a box or a bench. You can use a plyo box; it’d probably be kind of tough because with a plyo box it’s just wood. It might hurt a little bit on your shoulders. So, if you want something that doesn’t hurt quite as well you can use a weight bench with little part, pretty much pretty shoulder blazed right on the box just like so. All right, the weight is in the same spot just the same exact movement. He is going to squeeze his glutes. It’s going to give him a little range of motion and he is going to have to come up a little bit higher just like that. Jeremy: So, whether you are a strong man you cross fit, you cross train these are great tools to have around in your gym to vary up your training.
