At TCS, we’re super serious about pushing sleds and we do it often. Why? Sleds are quite possibly the most effective tool for getting people - at any fitness level, but especially beginners - to the next level. Here are just some of the many benefits that sleds offer:
They require 0.0 skill
Load it up for a strength stimulus
Keep it light and get a sprint stimulus
Tax the legs w/o loading the spine (think: pre/rehab)
With smart adjustments, everyone can play the same game & get the same desired stimulus
Push, pull, drag, row, arms-only push, etc. It’s all possible.
They SUCK! But they’re also kinda FUN!
So, the next time you see sleds programmed in the workout, get EXCITED! Who knows what you’ll be doing with them?!
