Mini Farmer's Walk Handles (Pair)
$99 & FAST, FREE SHIPPING
No need to walk like an Egyptian. Skip straight to farmer with our mini farmer's walk handles. Continuing our line of ultra-rugged garage gym gear, these black matte, powder coated bad boys look like a cross between a WWI tank starting crank and an emergency antique plow attachment for when your oxen went down, and you had to do it yourself. Once you throw some bumpers on them, you're going to feel like a strapping man of the earth doing noble yeoman's work.
Besides getting Texas strong with these, you'll be more than ready to haul off gigantic bags of grass in your backyard, carry kegs to summer parties, or even lug sacks of manure down mountainside trails to fertilize terraced gardens (I've done it!). Everyone has reason to improve their load carrying capacity. Farmer's walks have everyday utility and will blow up your forearms, triceps and traps in no time. You also get the bonus of improved grip strength while toning and tightening your abs, as your core works to keep your spine straight to support the load.
Good piece of equipment. Would love to have knurled handles though.
Very well built and durable. You can easily fit 2 45’s comfortably
After about two years, my only complaint is the smooth handles. Chalk helps with sweaty hands. I've wrapped mine with 1" adhesive cloth tape, and that solves the problem. The design keeps them close to your body, a plus when using in a cluttered basement or garage.
I got these for my home gym use. Not all of my bumpers are Fringe, so the thickness of my 45's varies. The length of the Mini FW Handle bar stub is just under 8in. With my bumpers being about 3.75" thick, I can only fit two 45's on the bar stub. I can probably squeeze another smaller plate on there, but then there's no room for a collar. If you are doing static holds, you can get by without a collar. If you are walking, you will need a collar or the plates will slip off. It would be nice if Fringe sold these FW Handles with a pair of their spring collars! For anyone wondering, normal oly bar collars fit the bar stubs fine. Overall, I like these FW Handles. The handle itself is a good diameter, about the same as an oly bar. The weight of each is about 9 lbs, so two 45's and the FW handle makes for about 100 lbs in each hand. For home gym use, that's about all I need.
