We don't have 9.75ers. I'd have to get radical and jump to 10 the second month. :sad:

I do farmers walks down my street at 1 in the morning to the park, do some sprints then walk back.

50s went fine. I did a minute.

Stayed on the rubber matt and adjacent carpeted area. Avoided the tile. Felt it in my grip at one point towards end and then also a bit in the forearms (different from grip in a way). Legs and core did not get too exhausted. Breath was fine (I do a lot of muscular endurance, really in my curcitued way.)

Felt it a bit in the at risk shoulder (not really muscularly, but more lik I on purpose try to shrug a little vice hanging naturally, so I don't take the pull on the joint. I can handle 50s fine though.

Thinking about adding 30-60 seconds more.

Definitely mostly a grip exercise for me. Hit core a lot more with my lying knee flexions.

When you say "50s" (pleural) you mean both at the same time? That will hit your core less than one at a time.

Yes, I meant both. Do you recommend doing one at a time? Like what, 30/30/30/30? Of course there are a lot of possibilities and I can just try things. But this is just one exercise within an overall routine and would like to select one version and roll with it for a while.

If you want to target core, try one-handed, however long you can. If grip is more important then save time by doing both at once.

When expressed like that, I really don't know why the heck I'm doing farmer's walk at all, as I don't care that much about grip. And I hit core enough other places. :frown:

I thought your goal was to do as many different exercises as possible each day. Kidding, but to look at the massive amounts of posts of different moves you discuss, you'd think so.

Admittedly that was pretty much what I was doing early on, but thankfully I soon stumbled on this site and actually soaked up all the advice I could get here (and elsewhere).

What? No, the point of my comment is that it should NOT be your objective to do as many different possible exercises each day. There should be a reason behind the exercises you choose - which should mostly be representative of the basic functional movements.

Do you disagree with my advice or are you just ignoring it?

I was joking, sorry, man.

I did appreciate your helping me. Just kinda bummed not to be doing the exercise though.
