Running through it is one of the best ways to see the world. Almost no other endeavor provides the ground-level engagement, scenic beauty and sense of immersion in nature and the natural world as running, which is why running-based fitness adventures are fast becoming one of the more popular ways to vacation. More than ever, runners are flying around the world to run marathons, weekend-long team relays and obstacle races.

Getting that grip strength down, pushing your heart rate through the roof, and building some nasty traps are some of the major benefits to doing heavy farmers carry. But many of us are limited to our heaviest set of dumbells or kettlebells to run this movement. I personally got tired of stacking 2 or 3 kettlebells in each hand to get to a heavy farmers carry, so I decided to do something about it. I browsed the internet in search of a set of farmers carry handles to stack plates on, but have trouble paying $180 or more for a decent set. So I went ahead and designed my own set for less than $100. Here is what you will need to do the same.


We train a lot with picking heavy stuff up and putting it down. This is the core of what external resistance training relies on. What is missing here is the functional accessory work that comes from pushing or pulling a weight across a plane.

This is where a weight sled comes in. Put a stack of 45s on a weight sled and you now have yourself a good time.

Unfortunately this is a tool that a lot of gyms don’t have. In order to get a decent one, you will likely fork out $250 or more. So, we decided to create a way to cheaply build a sled you can use without breaking the bank. The following build cost $92, all materials bought new. You could probably bring that cost down to around $50 but cutting a few items out, which will be highlighted in the instructions.
