• Top 5 Best Weight Training Sled Reviews UK

    by  •  • Training Gear

    If you’re contemplating whether to buy a weight training sled, then let me tell you, it’s definitely worth having as it’ll push you to your limits!  Using the weight training sled will give you a tough workout, improving both your strength and stamina.  As with box jumps on a plyometric jump box, a weight sled workout will also help you gain more explosive power.

    In addition, alongside with many other drills, it can also help improve your boxing footwork.  However, one of the downfalls about weight sled training is that it requires quite a lot of space.  So, if you were planning to get one, unless you have a big enough garden or space in the house, you’ll have to take it to a park or field. 

    Training with the weight sled aka power sled is not a beginner level workout, however, you can start off with no weights just to get use to the exercise.  All your muscles will be used and it’ll make your heart beat very fast depending on how intense your workout is.  Be careful not to overdo it and gradually increase the weight and intensity.

     

    Our Top 5 Best Weight Training Sled Reviews

    1) CoreX Commercial Weight Prowler Training Sled

    Average user rating (4.5 / 5)

    • High grade commercial quality with high quality materials and construction.
    • Poles capable of holding 2” Olympic weight plates.
    • Can be pushed on various surfaces due to the smooth curved bases.
    • Only requires a 17mm spanner and large Phillips screwdriver to assemble.

    Possible deal breaker

    • Unit itself is quite heavy so can be quite cumbersome when carrying it from one place to another.

    Although not the most friendly when transporting this from one place to another due to its weight, but, this is an indication of its sturdiness.  Despite that, this is one of the best weight sleds and will give you a great workout.  Perfect for a weight sled push or pull workout, unlike other models which only allow you to pull the weight with a harness.

    Take the SKLZ SpeedSack anywhere with you with the clever lightweight portable design.  There’s no need to buy additional weight plates since 3 weight bags are already supplied, the only downfall is that the maximum weight is limited to 30lbs.  Not ideal for bigger and stronger users who require more resistance.
