Suitcase Dumbbell Carry

The dumbbell suitcase carry is similar to a dumbbell farmer’s carry, but only uses one dumbbell rather than two. This simple change provides a significant challenge to the abdominal muscles. It can be a challenging finisher to any workout, or work well in fat-loss circuit training or as an accessory movement to heavy lifts like the deadlift.


  1. Strengthens and challenges the grip, core, traps, upper back, shoulders, and leg musculature together
  2. Serious cardiovascular challenge and calorie-burning
  3. Significant core and oblique challenges due to single-sided loading
  4. Builds muscular coordination and mental toughness in addition to strength and muscle
