StrengthCoach Latest Forum Discussions-Sled push as a main lower body lift

 Sled push as a main lower body lift

Hi guys,

I think I heard Mike say they’re starting to use the sled push as a knee dominant unilateral lift instead of just for conditioning. Counting steps instead of lengths.

I really like this idea for several reasons and want to start implementing it in my own programming.

1). What are people’s thoughts on this?

2). Does anyone have standards for this, e.g. 2.5 x bodyweight?

3). As a progression could you start timing it instead of just increasing he load?

Thanks in advance,



 RE: Sled push as a main lower body lift

Our main problem is that we got to a point where we just couldn't push the sled anymore?

I think in some ways it's a self limiting exercise.

Kids started to bring turf shoes because they couldn't get the sled to move. It ends up like a moon walk. Pushing forward but, going backward.

Athletes quickly got to 3 x's bodyweight.

This is Jack Eichel ( Buffalo Sabres) with 680. Just over 3 x's bodyweight.
