Static Bilateral Farmer Carry March With Kettlebell
HOW: Get set-up with a kettlebell in each hand holding them by your sides near your pockets. Be sure to stay strong in your shoulder blades by pulling them slightly up and back to ‘pack’ your shoulders (see video for cues). While maintaining kettlebell position, slowly march in place. Focus on keeping your core tight and maintaining balance on one leg, then repeat on the other side.
FEEL: This should feel like a full body workout, especially your core. Your shoulders and shoulder blades will be working hard to maintain the kettlebell position while your core and lower body work hard to maintain optimal alignment and posture while marching in place.
COMPENSATION: Do not lose kettlebell position, do not compensate with a hip hike or pelvic drop when balance on one leg. Do not arch your back. Try to focus on staying as tall as possible with optimal posture.
