Hey guys, I’m open to any and all advice on this. I’m absolutely terrible at carries, and I’m excellent at static events. I competed on Saturday, and hit a 400 deadlift for 18 reps, a 395 front squat with ease, both of which won my class. I took 2nd in log with 250, and nearly tied for 1st with 260. Meanwhile, I took last in conan’s wheel, and close to last in Hussafel stone. If my grip wasn’t as good as it was, Hussafel would have been even worse, but I managed to carry it for the full minute. My biggest issue is absolutely foot speed. I don’t have it, at all. It’s like I’m walking through mud on most carries. Front carries are probably slightly better than other ones, but none are very good. Are there cues that I should be focusing on? Or if there are no ‘quick fixes’, how should I start training carries to improve them? Low weight with as much speed as I can get, or heavy and just try to get faster? How often should I train them, and how much variety should I incorporate?
Also I’m in the 200 class, if that matters.
