“Wanna push the Prowler with me?” I asked. Silence.
Everyone else had finished training for the day, and I was left to push the Prowler alone. As you can tell, I’ve got some great training partners.
Here’s what I did that day: I pushed the Prowler for two trips with it empty – one down and one back. The only rest was the amount of time it took me to turn the sled around and start again. Then, I walked back into the gym, grabbed a set of plates, threw them on the Prowler and completed two more trips. I repeated this until I had seven plates on each horn, for a total of 16 trips. All of these were done at a fast walking pace, with no running. This makes it infinitely harder, especially at the lighter weights. In retrospect, this was not a wise decision at all. At the time, however, it sounded like a good idea. The total time for all 16 trips was approximately 35-40 minutes, which may as well have been 35-40 days.
