Train With The
Farmer's Walk Units
Accept nothing less!
The Farmer's Walk is one of the Old Time Strongman Events that can bring you tremendous forearm strength and full body power.
Sure, you can do it with dumbbells, but as the weights get bigger, you are going to smash the sides of your legs. You will also need several sets of heavier dumbbells as you get stronger.
We know from experience.

When it comes to the very best Strongman Equipment, Atomic Athletic has you covered. We came up the highest quality Farmer's Walk Handles to address the needs of serious Strongmen and Highland Games athletes everywhere.
Progression is the name of the game with the Atomic Athletic Farmer's walk handles. They can be plate loaded a few pounds at a time. Those few pounds add up to World-Class numbers, just ask Michigan Strongman Brian Duncan, who broke the World Record with the Atomic Athletic Farmer's walk Handles at the Detriot Highland Games Aug. 4, 2001, or ask James Rude, who broke the record in August 2007. Remember, go to the links page and check on the details of the next contest, it is an Open contest with a cash prize.
These handles were designed for excellence in Farmer's Walk training and competition. They have a 20 inch stride length area which is long enough to keep the weights from banging into your legs. Changing weights is a snap; they are quickly and easily plate loadable.

no where else:
We listened to you! The knurling on these babies is done by the same tool & die maker that does our Brass Thick Handled Dumbbell Handles This helps keep you from tearing off the skin from your hands and gain that important extra yardage. Knurling is an extra $50, as the price below is for the UN-Knurled Handle Variety, which is waht is called for in most Competitive Strongman Associations. Make sure to note that you want the knurled ones in the "Special Instructions or Notes" section of your order, if that is an option you want.
Two: At 1 1/4 inches thick, the handles are designed for the ultimate in stability, and functionality.
Other brands are too thin and cut into your hands, making training with them unbearable. That means LESS yardage!
Three: A Vinyl coat paint job.
This is the same stuff used by Hummer! When these are in stock, that is the color we will have. Any other color is a custom job, which will add a good 2-3 weeks to shipping time.
Four: They can be loaded with more weight than a human can use.
You don't want to be unpleasently suprised when you get too strong for your farmer's walk handles.
Atomic Athletic Farmer's Walk handles are also excellent for one arm deadlifting. Check out Steve Weiner in the lower photo. He amazed all of us at the AOBS dinner when he farmer's walked with 260. lbs per hand AND 200 lbs. hanging from his head. That's over 700 lbs. Steve is supporting. OUCH! Steve has lifted over 500 lbs. in a one arm deadlift with one of our handles. Lay the handle down and grab the thick handle for an instant thick handled dumbbell.
