  • 9 DB front squats 30lbs
  • 10 box jumps 20 inches
  • 50 meter suit case carry left & right side

    training notes:
    DB front squats:
    reduce db weight as needed

    Box jumps: reduce height if needed. Using low bumper plates is a great alternative to use as a "box" especially if your new to the movement or nervous of failing. Another option we love to use are "lateral skater jumps" see video here

    Suit case carry: Suit case carry's are much like a regular farmer carry however you're holding weight only on one side. It challenges the obliques more than regular FC.  The distance is 50 meters for right side & 50 meters for left side


    • Brace your core and glutes and drive through the floor to lift the weight
    • Straighten your posture, get tall, look straight ahead
    • Take small, quick steps

    recommended weight: this is only a recommendation. If you're new to this movement, beginner, or your body weight is higher and your strength level is lower, use a lower weight that you feel comfortable with.

    • 85lbs for body weight under 140lbs
    • 105lbs for body weight under 160lbs
    • 120lbs for body weight over 180lbs
    • beginners try 45lbs 

    If you don't have farmer handles, use the heaviest DB you have. If you don't have a heavy enough db to make this challenging for you.. do a regular farmer carry holding 2 weights each hand.
