Add Muscle, Build Stamina and Fire up Your Metabolism with Our Three-Move Strongman Circuit

 

  • When it comes to cardio, some people just aren’t interested in clocking up endless miles, much preferring the simple, sleeve stretching, pleasures of pumping iron to plodding along on a treadmill.
  • If you’re one of them, we’ve got good news, there’s a better way to get in that all important heart protecting, health promoting cardiovascular work: strongman-style loaded carries. And even better, you’ll be adding slabs of lean muscle, with every step you take.

Loaded carries are the perfect hybrid between weights and cardio. Moving heavy things, as quickly as you can, over medium to long distances, will give you all of the benefits of both lifting and shifting, in one convenient package. You can expect to build full-body strength, size and stamina, while simultaneously stoking your metabolism, with studies suggesting you may also be building resistance to injury.

 

 

ound to good to be true? Well before you get too carried awaywe should tell you that you’re going to have to work for it, and work hard. But we promise— the rewards will be worth it.

 

The Workout

 

Our ‘Loaded Carry Trinity’, requires just two kettlebells or dumbbells and a 20-40m length to strut your stuff across. After a thorough warm-up grab a set of 'bells totalling around half of your bodyweight and set a countdown timer for 30 minutes.

 

  • Work your way through as many high-quality rounds as possible of the following trifecta, resting only as necessary to catch your breath and keep your form tight. Keep a note of your ‘lengths’ and tot up your total distance when the buzzer sounds. Your goal is increase the total distance you cover each session, aiming for a total of around a mile before upping the weights.

1. Overhead Carry x 20-40m

 

Clean your 'bells onto your chest and press them overhead (A). Take a few deep breaths before starting your walk. As you move, try to avoid flaring your ribcage; keep your core braced and your biceps almost touching your ears (B). The strength and stability you will build across your whole shoulder girdle here is ideal for keeping them injury free in the long run.

2. Front Rack Carry x 20-40m

 

Don’t let go of your weights just yet – drop them down and secure them across the top of your chest, knuckles grazing your chin and elbows packed tight against your ribs. Again, stride forward with purpose. Focus on your breathing and try to ensure you walk in a straight line and avoid lateral movement as much as possible.

3. Farmers Carry x 20-40m

 

Finally drop your weights to your sides and finish the round with test of grip strength. (A) Let your arms hang freely at your sides, take a deep breath into your belly and begin a fast, deliberate march (B). Once you’ve covered your allotted distance, drop your 'bells, shake off those arms and get ready for round two.
