No snow, still you’re sled will go

Breaking out a sled for today!

Man, I’m excited to pull this tool out just as summer is coming to an end. No, not a party pooper however it will give you an insight to what the fall and winter WOD’s will have as a tool for you to use.

Yes, this brings another level of Fun (torture to some) for all to enjoy. Having said that here we’ll be able to eek out some pretty decent evaluations as to how your hips are doing. What? You see there are times we don’t notice that one leg / hip is kipping or being used more than the other and the energy expenditure is higher so you end up a bit lopsided because of it.

Although you’re working out, I’ll be checking you out while you do the sled pull for that allotted distance so we’ll have a dual function with a good tool.
