Weight Training: Forward Sled Pull
This is the forward sled pull. When done correctly, this movement will train core strength and stability as well as lower body strength with an emphasis on the glutes and hamstrings. The athlete should set up by gripping the handles on the straps connected to the sled, and walk forward until there is slight tension on the straps. The athlete will then lean forward slightly, and begin walking forward. It is important to make sure the athlete walks in a straight line and keeps their feet directly under their hips, and that the path is clear to prevent tripping or catching the sled on other equipment.
