I am curious as to why you wouldn’t do this with resistance bands of varying sizes. the benefits I see are less time between reps, easier to switch sides, increasing resistance though the movement, and a deceleration component.
Beacuse the resistance of the band does not match the natural resistance of most movements. When kicking, running, kneeing, etc. the resistance is greatest at the start of the movement where inertia has to be overcome, not at the end. The sled has a much more natural resistance curve that leads to better transfer to real world applications. This is the real advantage the sled offers over band resistance
hello, I love this drill, i just have a question, what equipment do you need to do this? Because i can find training sleds , but what do i need to connect it with my ankle?? all the training sleds i see come with shoulder straps.. thanks
Just go to your local sporting good store or order one of these online: Ankle Strap
which training block these drills fits better? strength or endurance?
I would use these more for strength and prep work for power development, not as much for endurance
