This is a weekly series on exercise that will give you the biggest bang for your exercise buck in and out of the gym. Today’s exercise is the suitcase carry.
You should do this because– we often have strength imbalances between our left and right sides. And lifting or carrying with one hand at a time will help iron out some of these imbalances.
Makes your everyday life easier because- you will be making less trips carrying the groceries from the car to the house. A definite time saver. No jar will be too difficult to open with your new found grip strength.
.
Form tips – Hinge or squat down to pick up the weight. Look in a mirror to see if your shoulders are even . Do 20-40 yards in each hand. Thanks to Kevin Carr for the video.
