Overall, carrying weights is an underrated exercise.
It deserves prominence up there with squats and deadlifts as a way to build bodily strength. And it tends to be very applicable to life as sometimes we need to pickup and move heavy things.
Nor is it just about strength, but can be turned into a great conditioning exercise too.
This videos covers 12 different positions you can carry weights in.
Realistically, there are four positions:
1. Top of Deadlift or By Hips Carrying Position
2. Clean or Rack Carrying Position
3. On Shoulders/Traps Carrying
4. Overhead Carrying
But if you then take these four positions and see that each one can be done unilaterally, that is on the left or right side, that adds up to twelve positions.
Various tools can be used for these. Shown in the video are a barbell and kettlebell, but many other options exist, including dedicated implements like the yoke or farmers walk handles.
