Why carry? Carries are deceptive: they seem a simple action, but are in reality extremely challenging. Heavy carries for long distances require spinal stability ("core" strength), shoulder flexibility AND strength, and grip strength. Today's workout combines both overhead and farmer's carries. Make sure to choose a weight that allows you to lock out and stack up overhead - if you are "chasing" the weight (letting it fall in front so you have to rush to keep up with it), or bending your elbows, lower the weight.
