- Sled Pull - 25 yards

WOD: "Annie"*

*If you complete Annie in under 10:00, consider scaling to GHD sit ups, weighted sit ups, or another variation....unless you're going for the PR board!

Why train with sleds?
- There is no eccentric (negative) loading involved with sled drags. Sled drags are a great strength and conditioning tool and will not cause extreme muscle soreness.
– Sled drags can be a great way to recover from a training session that has left you with DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). Adding in some sled drags in the days following heavily eccentric training can speed up recovery time and help reduce muscle soreness.
– They are a great way to add variety to strengthening and conditioning the muscles of the legs. Because of the versatility of the sled virtually every muscle of the leg can be targeted. This can cause a carryover effect and increase your numbers in many other lifts (squat, deadlift, clean, and snatch).
– Simplicity. Practically anyone can learn to drag a sled in about 30 seconds or less.
– They are great for rehabilitation or for maintaining and building strength, conditioning, and power while injured.
