How we walk can have a huge impact on our fitness.  Here at GFP we like to have our athletes walk holding heavy kettle bells  in their hands, also known as a Farmers Walk, here's why.
  1. They challenge hand strength to build a strong grip which is important for athletes that hold a bat, club, stick, or ball.
  2. Great core strength is developed from the added weight the body has to support during the walk. This contributes to a solid posture to sprint fast and resist contact.
  3. The lower body is engaged the entire time resulting in strong powerful hips to cut, dodge, and change direction.
To improve your performance the answer is simple, walk holding heavy weights.
