Alright, Little thread here for all things Prowler talk.
Obviously its getting used quite extensively in the Biotest Traning Facility, and many of us have access to them in our facilities and homes as well... But there isnt a ton of talk about it from in the trenches places, like forums, from what I can find.
So lets discuss this great training implement. I'll get the ball rolling with a few "ideas" and questions I'd like to hear some opinions on.
1 - The Eccentricless training: Obviously CT is huge on this, but how do YOU feel this type of training can be added to your program. I havent really experimented too much with this personally as I can't really find a good place to fit it in, so I'm putting it out to you guys.
2 - Pushing/Pulling: Probably the way its used most often. What kind of distances do you like for a "cardio" workout versus a POWER workout. I find that 2-3 Plates per post(ppp) work well for 25m Sprints and 50-100m pushes to leave you sucking wind, and I have worked up to 6-7ppp for 15-20m HARD Pushes that have you wishing the damn thing would just MOVE ONE MORE INCH!
I've read CT discuss things like using prowler work to come into a BB show with no muscle loss, using it for explosive pushes, adding volume to training, using it for cardio, etc...
So, lets get the talk going. How are you using it to add mass, shed fat, and build a better physique overall? Any particular protocal you are fond of? Any noticiable results that you can attribute to the Prowler?
I tend to like to split up my prowler work between 2-3ppp sprints 2x a week (6-8 sprints, or 6-8 rounds of pushing it 50m), and building up to 6-7ppp for heavy, death wish style 15m pushes 2x a week. I like to think its having an effect on the overall look of my body, just giving it more of a "powerful" look all over. Its tough to suss that out from just the training I've been doing though.
I'm still playing around with the placement of the prowler work in my training week (I'm assessing to see if it interferes with the weight I use on my Leg day exercises like squats, dont have all the info I need to make that decision yet.)
How say the Nation?
