Pushing and Pulling Sled Uses And Advantages - Sleds are effective tools for building explosive strength, sustained strength and extreme cardio. For an intense field (or parking lot) program that really gets the blood pumping and the legs churning, trainers turn to weighted sleds. While the original intent for sleds of this type was to train football linemen to help improve tackling and blocking power, several fantastic sled training techniques have been developed to build leg strength, speed, explosiveness, acceleration and overall athletic conditioning. Resistance Sleds help to improve acceleration with weight resisted sprints. Recent research shows that a load of 12.5-13% of body mass is optimal for sled training since it does not alter sprint kinematics. Heavy-duty designs allows for great short burst training. Use while running hills to intensify an endurance workout, or use handles for push training.
Push Weight Sled - The Ironcompany® Power Push Sled allows the user to push from both high and low positions for varied degrees of intensity and concentration on the quads. Load it up with weight plates for additional strength conditioning benefits. Other models include the Man-Of-War, the Pro Series Power Sled by Legend Fitness as well as the Modular sled that offers three tiers of pushing handles.
Pull Weight Sled - Extremely effective in strengthening the hamstrings, glutes, hips and upper back. Tow straps, normally made of very strong nylon or similar material, can be held in your hands or fixed around your waist with a belt, leaving your hands free.
