If you follow my stuff, you know I’m a big fan and regular user of drag sleds. As I said in a prior blog post, If you are not doing sled dragging, you should be! I consider it the most under utilized lower body exercise going. Forward is hard, reverse is brutal. According to the Elite Fitness site, the benefits of sled dragging is:
• GPP Work
• Injury Rehabilitation
• Strength Training
• Increased Work Capacity
• Starting Strength
• Acceleration Strength
• Strength Endurance
I’m a big fan of drag sleds. However, the Prowler sled takes it to another level. It’s your standard drag sled on steroids! The Prowler is, bar none, one of the best strength, conditioning, GPP tools you can use! Below is a short vid of my pal Jim and I doing some Prowler sled pushing… If you’re interested in The Prowler, there’s a link to EFS via the recommended products section HERE.
