What do you guys do with your sleds? I have one I built out of an old tire. I usually load about 100 pounds on it and do about three thirty yard sprents. But, this is getting old, and it is getting old fast.

I always walk with my sled. Running overcomes the friction and makes it easier.

Try pushing a heavy sled. Might be hard with the tire however.

Try pulling it running backwards.

Try pull it in with your arms (if it's light enough) as if you were pulling in rope.

You can pick up a deer dragging harness ($20 or less), it works great as a pulling harness. Load up a light weight and then take the sled for a long walk; this is a good way to mix up your conditioning work.

I've seen a guy do lunges with his, but I've never tried it.

Walk forward with a belt attatched it to simulate a truck pull.
Walk backwards with it.
Pull it backwards.
If you have a long rope you can row it towards you.

I have a sled/prowler combo so I can use it as a prowler too which is beastly conditioning.

You can use it heavy to get stronger and light for conditiong. It is a great tool. On elitefts I think they have a few articles with a lot of ideas.

I sometimes use a set of handles and do exercises like chest presses, rows, curls, tri ext, etc.

the handles/straps in that article are great, anyone have info on what the straps are made from and how theyre attached to the sled?

i have a sled but have yet to use it thanks to the cold weather. i was planning on just pulling it using my 4x4 tow strap.
