Coaching Tips: The bumper plate farmer carries can be held in the hole/hub or on the bottom of the plate. Move fast on these and set them down when a rest is needed (do not move slow and tax your grip more. Hold the plate against the chest for the bumper plate squats. Keep the abs tight on the burpees and do not hyper extend the lumbar when coming off the round.
