Dragging question

Im going to start some upper body sled dragging. Im doing it 2x a week. Ive read the westside 60% rule, but wanted to know roughly what weights people use for upper body. Bench is around 260 can do 14 pullups at 180bodyweight. Thanks

Depends if your dragging on concrete or grass. Concrete produces more of a “drag” as opposed to grass so you may have to experiment with the weight. My suggestion would be to start around 45 lbs. If your using it to promote restoration or increase your GPP it doesn’t have to be too heavy. Keep your rest periods short to nil and alternate between movements.

Thanks yeah its concrete ill try 45 and see how it goes…
