which workouts improve strength and stability to make lifting heavy boxes easier?
Deadlifts, squats, good mornings, GHR's, reverse hypers and any other posterior chain exercises.
pinpulls superseted with curls in the squat rack.
any exercise that has pulling motion
but i would have to say the deadlift is the best
If the boxes are easy to handle then any of the above would be good.
If the boxes are very large/cumbersome in addition to being heavy then it will be more a matter of figuring out how to best handle the boxes rather trying to build up strength to "brute force" carry them. If this is for a job trying to work *hard* instead of just emulating the guys who have been doing it for years will make you very tired & slow regardless of how much weight training you do.
Dude he just wants to get toned.. he doesn't want to look like Ronnie..
Lol i actually saw someone doing curls in the squat rack yesterday for the first time. I was like... "wowwwwwwwww"
