Two of our favorite training tools are the sled and the farmer’s walk, but when you put them together, they make one serious tag team.
After the completion of an all-out sled sprint, pick up a pair of heavy weights and walk back to the start. Think of the farmer’s walk as a moving plank. This is a perfect opportunity to keep your posture and breathe deeply into your stomach.
How to Do It
Repeat the following for 4 to 6 rounds:
- Perform a sled push for 30 to 60 yards one way. Choose a weight that allows you to produce high speed. The sled sprint should last 20-30 seconds.
- Upon completion of the sprint, grab a pair of weights (dumbbells, kettlebells, handles, barbells, Dead-Squat® Bar) and walk back to where you started.
- Rest for the amount of time it takes you to walk back to the sled.
