Valor Fitness ES-SLED Agility Training Sled with Harness - Power Sled - Acceleration Sled - Strength Sled - What are the benefits of sled training? Power Sleds help to improve acceleration and power in the hips and thighs with weight resisted sprints. They also increase functional strength and agility by adding resistance to your runs. Towing a weighted sled while sprinting overloads your drive muscles and forces your nervous system to recruit greater “work” which in turn, improves your ground force production and corresponding explosive acceleration and speed. With repeated use of a power sled and working against resistance, an athlete’s nervous system (which controls muscle function) can “learn” to fire harder all the time with each step repetition during sprints, and not just after using a weighted sled. As a result, athletes who combine sled training with traditional sprint training have been proven to have quicker 10 meter and 30 meter sprint times for short burst acceleration.
To progressively increase your strength levels, simply increase the tow weight by adding Olympic weight plates to the center weight post. The Valor Fitness ES-Sled is the most effective way to round out your athletic field training. The heavy-duty design makes sled great short burst training with included harness, or use the handles for push training or backwards drag workouts. Because crossfit is all about constantly varied movements, crossfit enthusiasts will push and pull a sled around for time or distance to mix up their muscle programming, increase muscular endurance, and add fun to their workout of the day (WOD).
