5. Weighted Sleds
OK, I’m not gonna lie. There’s only so much I can say about this machine that isn’t self-explanatory. Looks like a sled, has weights on it, must be a weighted sled. But if you think about why people would use this, that’s where things start to get a little hazy.
Are they training for when they have to teach their huskies how to do their job in the harsh arctic winter?
Are they planning to take the kids on the sled ride of their lives?
Are they preparing for a contest that only five other sled-fanatics in the world know about?
Unless these actually are the main reasons why you would use the weighted sleds, you could probably do without. Sure, it trains your legs, and your lung capacity, but you know what else does that? Good old fashioned sprinting. Not to be discouraging or anything (who doesn’t love dragging weights around? I know I do), but the truth is that this looks more or less “replaceable” by simpler methods.
