Knowledge is power!
Sleds are a great tool for building work capacity, muscular endurance, acceleration, strength, and recovery and all around awesomeness!
I think it’s sad I hardly see anyone dragging a sled or pushing a prowler. Next to a squat rack and a barbell, I would say the sled is one of the top essential pieces of strength and conditioning equipment for any lifter. Since I began Sled work I’ve seen the biggest gain in strength ever. Not only in myself but the IronWarriors as well. Give it a Go!
