Getting that grip strength down, pushing your heart rate through the roof, and building some nasty traps are some of the major benefits to doing heavy farmers carry. But many of us are limited to our heaviest set of dumbells or kettlebells to run this movement. I personally got tired of stacking 2 or 3 kettlebells in each hand to get to a heavy farmers carry, so I decided to do something about it. I browsed the internet in search of a set of farmers carry handles to stack plates on, but have trouble paying $180 or more for a decent set. So I went ahead and designed my own set for less than $100. Here is what you will need to do the same.
