uphill farmer walk question


Recommended Posts

Hi,

i was planning to train farmer walk in a spot where i can do it uphill.

Since the road its quite steep my question regard the downhill walk. Is it dangerous for my knees as exemple to walk downhill with weights, such as a copule of kettlebells or a sandbag, or is safe to do that?

I don't think its inherently unsafe, humans have been walking down hills with weights since forever. Just make sure you are staying focused, absorbing the force and pushing your knees out so that you use your glutes.
