Hey whats up people? i Was just wondering if it'd be ok to do a Farmers-Waiters walk at the same time, for example holding one Db above the head and the other one to the side with a much heavier weight. I know farmers walk is usually done with 2 db to the side, but the only reason why im thinking of doing it this was is because im limited in equipment. I have 100lbs worth of plates and can either do 50/50 on a farmers walk or do the Farmers-Waiters walk mix and have it at 80/20 (i would build up to 80). So that way i can progress a little bit more in weights instead of staying at 50/50 the whole time. So what do you think? and is there any safety issues? Like maybe putting too much stress on the ribs, spine or whatever? thanx lata...

Just do waiters walks and separately do one arm farmers.

Injury prone. And probably very arkward too.

+1.

Yeah, I know this is an old thread; I was reminded of it when I read this article, which mentions one-handed farmer's walks:

Anything that makes an exercise more awkward and difficult is a good thing generally.
