The Prowler sled is an extremely versatile piece of equipment that offers many benefits, produces incredible results in a very little amount of time. The Push/Pull Prowler Sled is one of the best ways to develop strength in your legs, hips, and arms. It can be used in team situations and competitions. There is an added centre pole that allows for weight plates to be added for increased resistance.
Prowlers and Sleds are some of the most effective conditioning and power development tools we have.
The Prowler Sled is no ordinary gym sled. The upright pushing poles are designed to hold Olympic Weight Plates for added resistance. These poles are made with structural integrity and strong enough to carry more weight than you can handle.
4 Sled Training Workouts
# 1 Sled sprint pushes
This workout is perfect for your upper body (especially your shoulders), your core, and your legs.
Set up your sled on a flat area where you can move in a straight line for 25 to 50 meters.Push the sled for 25 to 50 meters, sprinting the whole time. That’s one rep. Reverse course and do another sprint with the sled. Do 10 reps a set.
#2 Push-pull circuit
Attach a long strap that has two handles.
Each circuit has two components: A “push” and a “pull”. Perform 10 reps of each exercise before moving on to the next set.
#3 Standing sled chest press
Stand facing away from the sled with the straps in either hand at your sides. “Begin with a staggered stance in order to create better stability, which will allow you to press more weight on the sled,”. Press the straps on a slightly upward angle, mimicking an incline dumbbell chest press. Reset to the starting position and repeat.
#4 Standing sled row
Facing the sled, pull the straps taut with straight arms. Slightly bend your knees and maintain a straight spine as you pull the straps in a row movement (similar to how you would on a low-cable row machine). Once you complete a row, move back a few steps until the straps are taut and row again.
