Hip Flexor Sled Drags

I was just wondering how you would do these? Joe talked about these in his forum, but now that it’s not up anymore, I was wondering if anybody knew how to do these. Thanks.


The westside guys recommend attaching the sled to your ankles to recover and learn how to integrate their abdominals into squatting more efficiently. Here’s Dave’s description of the motion:

Start the motion in a split stance position and pull the back leg forward with a slight bend in the knee. Concentrate on using the hip flexors and abdominals, not the quads. This movement has had a profound difference on many lifters I’ve consulted. It teaches them how to use their abdominals in a way that’s conducive to doing the squat.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Aaron.
