Let’s look at Tank Push Sleds from Torque Fitness.
The sled push is a great way to add diversity and intensity to your training plan. It engages your core, glutes, hips, hamstrings, back, calves, triceps, and shoulders all at once, whether you load the sled with weights or not. Also recognized as the prowler press, the sled push is an exceptional exercise for overall conditioning, strength improvement, increasing agility and acceleration, and burning calories.
Here are some of the styles we are going to look at:
Torque TANK Push Sleds – Overview
TANK Push Sleds from Torque Fitness highlight magnetic resistance, heavy-duty wheels, and an overbuilt body. Personal trainers, Commercial Gym Owners (including CrossFit Affiliates,) and strength coaches will most benefit from a TANK. The core technology that makes all TANK models different is that they can be run indoors or outdoors on any surface without gouging, unlike resistance sleds.
Also, on all TANK models, the resistance raises the quicker you push it, so you can choose your resistance on the fly without pausing to load or unload plates. Finally, all TANK models enable HIIT in which bursts of acceleration and speed for 14 minutes of a Tank workout is the equivalent of an hour on a treadmill.
Like the M4, the MX is bi-directional, eradicating the necessity to turn TANK around, decreasing the path width reserved for Tank runs. The MX resistance can be expanded to 25% on all four wheels with the flip of the MX lever in addition to the three levels of resistance on the M4. And to handle the added resistance, the MX tires are larger and broader than earlier models. An optional weight horn is available for athletes who want to do more extreme towing exercises.
A lower push point is shown on the handles to add variety to the targeting of muscle groups. MX handles are detachable without tools and can be stored within the stack. MX can be stacked three high for more compact storage and transportation with an optional Stacking Kit. The resistance can be decreased immediately during the run to a safer level depending on the user’s age, conditioning level, and fitness goals.
