Wheelbarrow Race - Fun Strength & Conditioning Exercise

This page provides details on the strength & conditioning exercise known as a Wheelbarrow Race. This is a fun exercise to use with younger students or to add some variety to a regular exercise routine. Martial arts schools use wheelbarrow races as a game in order to entertain kids while "hiding" a useful strength & conditioning workout.

In this exercise, a partner will hold the legs of a student and the student must use his/her arms to "walk/run" to the finish line. Both students will benefit from this fun exercise as it works on upper body strength and conditioning.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained instructor in order to prevent injuries and to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For additional strength & conditioning exercises, please visit the main Martial Arts Physical Fitness section.
