No reindeers, we're not talking about Santa's sleigh. Yet, these are nice heavy sleds: instead of gifts we have all the Olympic plates you will be able to move! Pulled, dragged, pushed, sleds are practically omnipresent gym equipment: we see them at the gym during training, we see them on the playing fields for the players' training and we see them now in elite competitions: different sizes, shapes and conceptions. Obviously training sleds arrive in the world of Cross Training 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 through fields and forests...it wasn't easy. And if yesterday sleds were used only by lumberjacks, today they are fundamental for weightlifters, footballers, rugby players, sprinters and so on. Thanks to these training sleds, it is possible to increase strength, improve arm and leg coordination, 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 repetitions- sled rows - with one or two arms, backward walking; 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. These are only sfew of the numerous exercises that can be done with training sleds!
How are Lacertosus® branded training sleds? 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 Olympic plates' loading - these are plates with a 50-mm diameter hole. It is a resistant, stable and long-lasting structure - Heavy Duty - designed to withstand years of intense training unscathed. We know 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 foldable pin for plate loading, 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!
