Many people think the sled is a fitness or athletic training tool, but it also works for those looking for a bigger, stronger physique and better work ability.
The sled pushing is only concentric so it does not cause any malignant pain. It’s a safe way to load and exercise your calves and ankles when you need them to move. It also adds even more quad, buttock, and calf volume to your program.
Push the slide
Take natural, deliberate steps as you push a loaded sled over 20-50 feet of lawn. Flex your abs and maintain a neutral spine as you straighten your hips with each step. Focus on pressing your feet into the ground to propel the sled forward instead of taking exaggerated steps. Charge the sled and do real work.
After each workout, do 3-4 sled jobs for higher intensity anaerobic interval training. When you do this, you will spend less time on steady state cardio for your body compensation goals.
