Better Acceleration through Sled Marches

One of the best ways to improve acceleration? Push a heavy sled.

One of the biggest misconception is that sports are about top end speed. In reality, sports are all about acceleration, and no matter what sport you play improving acceleration will improve performance.

  • sleds develop specific strength of the muscles used in sprinting/acceleration
  • sleds teach an athlete to produce force in a more horizontal plane as they would in sprinting/acceleration
