Apparently it has excellent carryover to strength training. I really want to give it a go.

Same here Monsta - I just have to get off my lazy ass and make one. They can be cheap to put together. I have the best place to do them too , a nice dirt/gravel alley - Very low traffic and it leads right to a open grass field.

really. i thought about trying to make one but i know after a while i might want to just buy the real thing. what i might do is build one and then buy a real one. the biggest thing about making one is putting a harnes together to run comfortablly with it

For those of you who want a sled...

Get an old tire, drive a u-bolt through the tread wall and get an old rope, etc to pull it with. A tire on non-gravel covered pavement has a TON of friction even with relatively low weights. It is cheap too. I'll bet most of you can find a free tire laying on the side of the road somewhere. Tire shops will give them to you by the ton if you will take them. Saves them money on disposal. Your typical sled doesn't really give you any advantages over this design unless it allows you to push it as well (like a prowler).

This is the most simple tool to get your hands on, no question. I use mine at least twice a week, and you can see how often DH uses his. Honestly there isn't a good excuse not to have one.

LOVE sled pulling! The 90 lb sled pulls were fairly easy (except for scarecrows!). It's motivating to get outside for some shoulders/back work. My favorite was by far the triceps press.. With the 120 lbs!

To picture what I do, watch Andrew's video. Same straps. Now picture him walking forward a step or two to take out all the slack with his arms straight down and behind him.. Now do a front raise, take a step forward, repeat. For scarecrows, you're walking backwards. Take in all the slack with your arms straight in front of you. Now contract and make your arms form a "T".. Yeah, my traps are really sore today lol. For triceps extensions, walk forwards with your elbows above your head (hands are just behind your ears), take in the slack, then extend your hands up.

Get the picture? To be honest, I much prefer upper body sled work to DB's without a doubt in my mind. Just sooo much to do! Not to mention getting your ass out of the gym provides a nice mental break. Next time I'm going to do some serious Prowler work. And my lower day I'm going to try attaching the straps to my ankles and go for a walk.

To be honest I can't picture any of that. How in the hell do you make your arms into a T? lol

The start of the movement has your arms together, straight, and in front of you. Okay? Now, there's no slack in the line. From there, your palms are facing each other. Now, keeping your arms chest high, you're pulling the rope (with your arms straight) all the way until your arms are out (still straight) to your sides.. Thus, you're making a T.

Get it now, or do we need to take a trip on the short bus?!
