Its one of the best workout for athletes to enhance their strength, stamina and endurance. Its a simple excercise that involves walking for a set distance or time while carrying weight but performing it properly is the key to prevent injury and to maximize results.


It is classified as a compound excercise for a simple reason that it activates nearly every muscle group.

- Core Muscles - Braces and stabilizes the entire body

- Grip strength in the hands, wrists and forearms 

- Upper Back and Traps- Prevent shoulders and chest from sagging

- Lower body 

- Cardiovascular system - engaged throughout the entirety of the movement

As a result, the entire body is put to work and helps in burning calories.

How :-

- Stand between two sets of weights

- Lift from the middle of the weights to avoid tipping. Tight grip

- Brace your core and glutes and lift the weight keeping your spine neutral

- Straighten your posture, stand tall and look straight ahead

- Take small and quick steps but dont run. 

- Put the weights down in a controlled manner keeping your spine neutral


- Starting light is good. It will give you a sense for the movement. It seems like an easy workout as I mentioned but its not so easy, if you workout with the perfect form. Increase the weight gradually.

Have a safe Workout !!
