How to physically prepare to be a carrier

Hello,

I am new to this community. I am an Indian guy currently living in Berlin, Germany.

My question here is to experienced carriers. What kind of physical fitness do I require to be a good carrier? I have a few extra kgs on my body.

Is it possible to get the training on the job?

In my experience, zercher squats are the best workout to prepare for giving shoulder rides. They develop not only the legs but also the upper back.

Zercher squats were done by old school wrestlers to prepare for lifting people.

There are plenty of zercher squats tutorials on youtube. I advise you to use some sort of padding on the barbell to protect your skin while training. You can do 4 sets of 12 reps every fourth day.

Hope it helps!
