Sled Drags as Assistance on Deload Week


#1

To be blunt: is this a good idea, bad idea, or neutral idea that doesn't matter one way or the other? Specifically, for my lower body days I'd do the deload sets/reps as prescribed in the original book for main work, 3x10 GHR, 3x10 walking lunges (light weight), 5x10 ab work, then drag a heavy sled around for like 20 minutes. I figured this would be a good way to get some "challenging" work in that isn't particularly hard on the nervous system and won't interfere with recovery. Thoughts?


#2

I think I could do this during the deload week and get away with it(getting sufficient recovery). But try it and give us feedback.


#3

Yes. This is part of the Beyond book.


#4

my favorite is prowler easy and medium and just a good ol 2 mile walk on deload week

Must have missed that part or let it slip into my subconscious without remembering where it came from. Thanks.
