Made of strong welded steel, the Power Sled can hold up to four 45-pound weight plates. You can use the handles to push or pull the sled or target your stride length by using the belt and harness. For forward, backward and lateral training, the waist belt provides versatility. The dual leads stabilize the sled during runs and drills, and round tubing allows for smooth slide with less damage to the field.
The Power Sled from Power Systems is ideal for developing not only muscular endurance and strength, but can also be used in aerobic training. It is a versatile piece of equipment that can be used for a sled push, for sled pulls, or it can also be dragged to target different sets of muscles. Athletes use the Power Sled to improve their deadlifting skills.
A sled workout is ideal for those wishing to develop powerful legs and a strong lower back. It is common to see a football training sled used by professional athletes to help improve their acceleration on the field. A study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research found that sprint training combined with sled training produced a 1.3% improvement in time over sprint training alone.
Consider adding the Power Sled to your fitness center equipment arsenal and give your athletes an edge over the competition!
