Co-developed with Rob Orlando of Hybrid Athletics, our quality, American-made Farmers Walk Handles prove the limitless potential of a simple design + a simple movement.
As a workout, the farmer’s carry takes weight training back to barnyard basics, but it’s become increasingly popular among modern strength athletes, not just as an efficient way to build forearm and grip strength, but for its full body, muscle building benefits—from the glutes, quads and calves to the upper back, shoulders, and core. The prolonged muscle tension created simply by walking with heavy weights in each arm, in proper posture, helps develop greater endurance and GPP for all types of athletic disciples.
While variations of the farmers walk can be performed using dumbbells or kettlebells, our specialized 60” Rogue Farmers Walk Handles are built solely for this purpose and offer convenient compatibility with standard Oly plates. This means any athlete can quickly customize the weight load, utilizing 24” of total loadable sleeve space on each bar, with a capacity up to 400 LBS. The elevated grip portion of the handles are made from 1” schedule 40 pipe, and the entire unit includes our Signature texture black powdercoat finish for a firm grip and a great look.
IMPORTANT: Standard barbell collars will not work on this specialty bar. We recommend using the Rogue HG Axle Collars.

As a former world-class Strongman and CrossFit competitor, strength coach Rob Orlando has played a lead role in integrating those two worlds over the past decade. He created the CrossFit Strongman Certification Seminar in 2011, and has helped introduce Strongman implements like the Farmers Walk Handles to a wider audience through his Connecticut-based gym, Hybrid Athletics. We were happy to work with Rob to design and build a set of handles that would meet the standard of the world’s top competitive athletes.
Rogue Farmers Walk Handles are manufactured in Columbus, Ohio, utilizing 1.5” schedule 80 pipe (shaft) and 1” schedule 40 pipe (handles). Each shaft has an overall length of 5 feet, with 12” of loadable sleeve space on each end. For improved grip and durability, we’ve used our Signature Texture Black Powdercoat finish. An unloaded Farmers Walk Handle weighs 21.5 LBS and can hold up to 400 LBS in bumpers or cast iron plates.
While widely known from Strongman competitions, adding a farmers walk / farmers carry to a regimen can have wide-ranging benefits for all types of athletes. Besides the obvious emphasis on grip and forearm strength, this simple compound movement (with the added advantage of adjustable weight loads) can build greater overall endurance and GPP while strengthening the upper back, shoulders, legs, and core.
