For those of you using sled dragging as part of your training, I was hoping you could help me out. I did some ankle dragging for part of my workout yesterday. When doing these, are you supposed to keep your legs straight and take small steps to focus on the glutes and hamstrings? Or do you take larger steps, bending your knees? Also, when doing regular sled drags, are you supposed to remain upright or will you be bent forward slightly in order to pull more weight? Has anyone done the bent-over dragging with your hands behind your knees to focus on hamstrings? I tried these, but didn’t feel it in the hamstrings. Actually, doing them in this position made it easier to drag more weight (lower center of gravity).
I did various sled dragging after a rope warm-up and some kettlebell work. I didn’t think the sled dragging did anything, but I did feel a little sore last night and this morning when I woke up. So it must have worked. I started out using the sled (I have one from Dave Tate’s site) along with a 35lb plate.
