  • Vid: Prowler Sled Day!

    Ever use a Prowler Sled??!!! Made this short vid today after my pal Jim and I did some Prowler sled pushing... I think he wanted to kill me, but he was too freakin' tired. Jim is ex UMC, has had multiple knee surgeries on both knees, and is no spring chicken, but I have to hold him back from over doing it as he has no quit in him.

    Gotta love the 20 - 40 somethings who can't get it together to get the needed exercise...just sayin'

    The Prowler is, bar none, one of the best strength, conditioning, GPP tools you can use! The Prowler rules all....

    That's quite a statement. Ive got a line on one of these that will make it pretty inexpensive...Im just not sure about it yet. Im just concerned about how often I will use it.

          Me too. Plus all the other things that can be done with a tire. But trie flips are just FUN!

              It's a heavy beast and not easy to transport. I tend to use the basic drag sled more often.

                Yeah thats part of my concern. I would have to leave it outside and since I have no yard to speak of..would need to transport it in order to use it.

                  The Econo Prowler is the lightest easiest to transport. Mine is the Prowler 2, and it's probably 80-90lbs empty. What I have done is left it at the gym until it's warmer. It's not like anyone can break the damn thing. Bang for the buck, I'd say $$$ better spent on standard drag sled honestly. If you do that, flip tires, etc, Prowler probably adds little for the cost it ads and being a PITA to transport. It works great with a group of people, and I use it with the LE, etc teams I may work with, so for me, it's got biz and personal uses.

                  You also have various options, there's the two major handles to push, but two more sets in the front lower, which are much harder and you have rings in the front to attach harness, and or straps for reverse pulls. If you have a SUV kinda thing, and a parking lot close buy to push it, and want something different, I think you'd enjoy it, but probably not a "must have" item in your case is my guess.

                    Great video Will. You were pushing some serious weight on that last set. I wish I had one. It isn't even the price itself that hurts, it's that shipping is nearly as much as the sled itself. I'm probably going to get a cheaper push sled. One of the ones that's just a flat skid with a weight peg in the middle. Put a rope on it, and drag.

                      Thanx, my stupid sneaker coming off meant that was probably max weight for the day. I wanted to try 4 plates per side (8 total) but sh&% happens, so I stopped there.

                      As mentioned to brownj21 above, standard drag sled is better bang for the $$$ anyway
