knee walkups for strength

At Ed Coan’s Powerlifting seminar in 2016 I remember him saying we should get strong all over.

So how does that become a reality?

Training from every angle helps.

Strongman training is a good example of that.

Mace Fit is too.

So here’s one exercise you can start the week with for that.

knee walkups

1) kneel down holding a weight with both hands

2) stand back up without using your hands or putting the weight down

You can use any kind of weight for this, like a pair of kettlebells or dumbbells held in the rack position.

A sandbag held in the Zercher position is good for this too.

My favorite is a steel mace held down by the pommel with the heavy end up.

All of these are challenging.

Do 20 reps for a warmup or finisher.

Go get ’em,
