With the rope and the sled behind you, pull the sled through your legs hand over hand. You will hate me for this.


This sounds like fun.

Was just re-reading Dan John's article on sleds and carries, very funny and challenging.

At the end he says something like this: "Put on vest, wrap the sled harness around your waist, pick up two farmer's bars (or a huge sack of sand) and go. Nothing but pure fun."

I've been experimenting with the sled and have realized "perceived effort" on this is very deceiving. It can seem very heavy and difficult, but you add 25% and the feel is really no different. I'm trying to work out a reliable benchmark of progress. Obviously if you can jog even a few steps it is too light (assuming heavy is what you are going for), and too heavy is when you can't move it. Looking for that spot just below too heavy.
