The Sled

Power Sled Push
The Sled is a blessing from above because the possibilities are endless. Its ability to enable us to put weight into motion means that it can be just as effective or even more effective than other leg workouts in helping us attain power and speed because it is strength specific. If there was one piece of fitness equipment I could take with me to every competition, it would be the sled.
What I love about the sled is its versatility. The options and combinations are endless. You can run and bound forward, backwards and sideways. You can use your hands to pull or push the sled forward, backward and sideways. With the right mindset and creative attitude, the sled is one of the best workout machines ever made. Here are some pictures of the possibilities with the sled.
