Having done the Poliquin training, I didn’t think it generated that much lactate. Certain movements do, however, the squat being the most potent example, IMO. But others like deadlift far less so. In fact, other than the squat, the 10x10 didn’t for much for me. I did get much more out of the revised GBC training (6 reps) but that’s beside the point. IMO, when I compare it to Prowler and sled work the lactate generated here is on another level. I don’t know if your equipment stretches that far? I train at home too and I rigged up a tyre sled, which I can use on some grassland very close to my home. The backward sled drag is blowtorch to the quads time![/quote]
Then you did not do the program mentioned above. deadlift? For 25? That’s not lactate, that is low back suicide… For me, anyways.
Prowler is quite good. Probably better. But not everyone has one and look at the date the article was published. [/quote]
Yeah, I agree about the deadlift. I can’t recall Poliquin recommending it for 10x10, I was merely replying to the OP’s comment about using it.
Well people have been pushing and pulling heavy objects for millennia for performance so the Prowler ain’t exactly new! And I agree, few people likely have access to one. I certainly don’t. As I said, I went for a homemade tyre sled, which is a close second to the Prowler.
