Why use a formula?
I know, it’s an odd question. It’s for a group workout. Doesn’t have to be exact science but it would be nice if there was something I can use in that situation. There are so many variables to consider so I wasn’t expecting an easy answer. But if there’s a weight to distance scale based on performance while doing certain lifts…I don’t know. I’ll read through that linked article and try and make sense of it.
If it was just for me, I’d just grab something heavy and walk until I got tired but it’s for group training session and I wanted to make the challenge equal for all. [/quote]
Okay cool, that makes more sense.
Dumbbells are the key.
Just get people to grab them, do one walk and then scale as necessary. I just dont see how you could get a group of people any other way.
But as someone who has farmers bars and used them. I have yet to see any correlation to lifts to ability in the farmers walks.
