- Safely set a sled on one end of the sled track and load it with the desired amount of weight plates. Place both hands on the upright poles of the sled and take a large step back with your preferred leg. With your arms extended, lean your torso forward, ensuring that you maintain a neutral spine. This is your starting position.
- Drive off your back leg and continue to take large steps forward to push the sled to the end of the track, breathing deeply throughout. Ensure that you keep your arms extended and maintain a neutral spine.
- Once you reach the end of the track, lift your torso and bend at the hips and knees into a squat position, ensuring that your thighs are parallel to the floor. While keeping your arms extended and maintaining a firm grip on the upright poles, take small steps backwards, one foot at a time, to pull the sled and return to the starting position, breathing deeply throughout. Once again, ensuring that you maintain a neutral spine. Continue alternating between a sled push and sled pull for the specified amount of time.
