EXCERCISE OF THE MONTH
Build function strength while you get ready for your summer vacation!
The suitcase carry exercise is functional exercise that can be implemented into any program for all individuals from novice to expert. The suitcase exerciser is a total body exercise with emphasis on the oblique’s, transverse abdominus, rectus abdominus, deltoids, latissimus dorsi and multiple others. This exercise is used in everyday life from carrying an actual suitcase, groceries, and/or gym bag. Learning how to properly engage your core and stabilize is crucial to prevent the likelihood and chance of injury.
To perform this exercise, select a weight that is challenging to hold, beginning with the weight on the floor next to you. With your feet shoulder-width apart, descend into deadlift position by flexing the knees and hips. You should be looking at a point several feet in front of you to maintain a neutral cervical spine. Your chest should be up and your back arched, with a neutral grip on the dumbbell.
Inhale just before picking up the weight. Extend through the hips and knees to deadlift the weight, sticking your opposite hand out to the side to act as a counterweight. This will be your starting position.
To perform the exercise, simply walk forward holding the weight at your side. Heavier loads may require some amount of lean to remain upright. At all times maintain proper posture in the spine, keep your arms extended, and keep the shoulder in a neutral position. Walk forward the given distance, executing a turn if needed. When the route is completed return the dumbbell to the ground with a controlled deadlift. Do not drop the weight.
Try incorporating this exercise into your exercise program or consult with one of our certified personal trainers to help you properly set up and execute this exercise.
