No reindeer, we're not talking about Santa's sleigh. Yet these are nice heavy sleds: instead of gifts we have all the Olympic discs that you will be able to move! Pulled, dragged, pushed, the sleds are practically omnipresent gym equipment: we see them in the gym during training, we see them on the playing fields for the players' training and we see them now also in elite competitions: there are sizes, of different shape and conception. Obviously the training sleds arrive in the world of Cross Training straight straight from the world of work, and more specifically from the world of Scandinavian woodcutters, who to transport the felled logs home could only rely on large sleds, to be dragged not easily in in the middle of fields and forests. And if yesterday sleds were used only by lumberjacks, today they are fundamental for weightlifters, footballers, rugby players, sprinters and so on. Thanks to the sleds for training it is possible to increase strength, improve the coordination of arms and legs, increase acceleration and, let's say it, break the routine, leaving barbells and rigs aside for a while. The possible exercises are many: you can do repeated shooting - sled rows - with one or two arms, walking backwards; it is possible to do bear crawls, getting on all fours and pulling the sled with a belt; and again, sprints can be done, pushing the sled by leaning forward as much as possible. And these are some of the many exercises that can be done with training sledges!
How are Lacertosus® branded training sledges? We are obviously talking about very high quality sleds. For those looking for a simple training sled we have created our usual basic model, complete with harness and pin for loading Olympic discs - and therefore discs with a 50 mm hole. It is a resistant, stable and long-lasting structure - Heavy Duty - designed to withstand years of intense training unscathed. We know that the sled is now essential for every gym, but we know more that it is a rather bulky accessory: for this reason our basic model is embellished with a pin for the loading of the folding discs, so as to minimize the overall dimensions of the training sled at rest. Do you want something even more versatile and structured? Then you should think about our Prowler Power Sled, multifunction, to be used on any terrain, from concrete to natural lawn. Let's talk about a real tank!
