Default Carries for Conditioning

I hope this is in the right thread but I was wondering if anyone used or heard of implementing extensive carries (~10 minutes worth) with various loads and objects (sandbags, plates, kettlebells, dumbbells/ in front, racked, at the side, etc.) Seems like a great combo for strength and conditioning to be used at almost any point of a training session. Any thoughts?

It's called rucking.

Also see the "Inman Mile". Farmers walks. Waiter walks. Etc.

Ha! we were just talking the other night about doing a SM contest that had a wheelbarrow event, either part of a medley or really heavy or uphill as a stand alone.

No doubt! Here in Norfolk, VA at BSG(Brute Strength Gym) they finally got a really heavy duty one in and we have been discussing that and using the same wheel barrow as a car deadlift surrogate. This thing is REALLY heavy duty.

I think I hear it calling my name again...

I've been by Brute strength! Great facility. I'm up in Richmond, run a CrossFit gym (CrossFit RVA), but I train occasionally at The Weight Room, run by the NAS state chair. Great place to go if you're ever in town.
