Carrying an object like groceries or a gym bag is as functional as it gets when it comes to our everyday lives. In the gym, we call this very natural movement the suitcase carry. When done properly, it can be one of the best exercises for building core strength and even a sneaky-effective tool for conditioning. In this episode of #EbAndSwole, Men’s Health fitness director Ebenezer Samuel, C.S.C.S., walks you through how to make the most of the exercise to help you build a strong core. Let’s get to work!

One of the most important components of exercise is resistance training. This type of training increases muscle size and strength. It can also lower the risk of injuries and improve health.
Resistance training can be performed using body weight, free weights, or machines. The exercises can be performed either in a gym or at home. Having a workout regimen can increase your energy level and help you stay fit for life.
A number of studies have shown that strength training improves your overall cardiovascular health. These benefits include a lower heart rate, higher blood flow, and a reduction in blood pressure. Moreover, muscle mass has been linked to longer lifespans and a lower risk of diseases such as cancer and diabetes.
One of the main reasons for this is the fact that skeletal muscles play a major role in controlling the amount of glucose in the blood. Muscles also store glucose as glycogen. Increased muscle mass means your body can burn more calories at rest.
For this reason, it’s not surprising that increasing your muscle mass can also help you lose weight. Another benefit of this type of exercise is that it can make daily tasks such as carrying groceries easier.
When performing any strength-building activity, it’s best to focus on your main goal. The most common reasons for building muscles are to improve your physique, increase your strength, or lose weight.
To get the most out of your workout, do exercises that are high intensity. That means you’ll be doing at least eight to twelve repetitions.
