Prowler Sled

Thursday, February 09, 2012

This is a prowler sled made by BWTG. www.blackwidowtg.com/
As you can see from the pictures, it is plate loadable and makes an excellent conditioning tool. It can be pushed or pulled, and it can even be disassembled and made to fit in a trunk.

I got this for GPP/Conditioning, it gives me a quick (and brutal) training session I can sneak in on my lunch hour. It's also a nice change from hill sprints.

Some good advice I can pass along is this: It is a dumb idea to try and use this the day after deficit deadlifts or heavy squats. That is all.
Thanks for reading my blog.

    BB Hell Yeah. I have been wanting one for some time now, and it's everything I thought it would be, for about $100 less than any other that isn't also Chinese junk. It isn't powder coated, but I don't really care. I figure a can of rustoleum a year still comes out cheaper.
    On programming I'm still doing 5/3/1. For the next two cycles I am doing the "Boring But Big" accessory routine - but only on the bench and deadlift. I am also doing a crap ton of shrugs with the trap bar 2x per week. I am doing hill sprints with a weighted vest once a week and using the prowler 2X per week.
    This is a great 5/3/1 routine generator I use: strstd.com

    Very cool. So what program are you doing these days? Still 5x5?

    Rex, No - with the the sled you push or pull it, the bars I'm carrying in my profile pic are actually farmer's carry bars.

    That's quite a piece of equipment you have there.
