Tip of the Day
Single arm BB farmers carry! Talk about unilateral loading at it's best!  Not only are you going to be working your grip and forearms trying to keep the bar level, but your midline stability is going to be working over time to keep you level.  Do your best while walking to not over lean to the opposite side as the weight as this will cause unneeded pressure in your back.  Are you going to need to counter balance, yes, but it shouldn't be anything over exaggerated.
