I LOVE farmers walk and credit it with some of my recent 20plus pound weight loss. I have a gym membership, so I tend to do them there. They have 45 pound plates with handles -- generally built for the bench or for dead lifts/squats, but they work PERFECTLY for the farmers walk -- they have handles, and they are heavy, and the whole exercise burns like hell. Since most gyms have the weights set up in a big room with space for people by the mirrors and behind the machines, I walk in a large loop around the room. By the time I get back to starting position, I'm toast.
When the gym is way packed, I take the plates to the basketball court and just go around the perimeter -- which is harder than the weight space -- and it crushes. I've found that it truly is a full body workout, and shreds.
Definitely add it to the repitoire.
