I’ve got more background in straight free-weight gym exercises and training programs. I’m trying to expand my training knowledge and experience into more unconventional training methods. I figure it’ll help spice up the training, use muscles otherwise ignored, and give me some good GPP work.
I just acquired three empty kegs and filled them up with water. The weights ended up being 75, 115, and 160 lbs. I also rigged up one of those red Radio Flyer wagons into a pretty decent sled. (I’ll take some pics and post them if anyone wants to see the design.)
My question is to those who typically do sled work and use kegs in their workouts (thanks to Shugs for the Killing Steve blog for the keg idea).
What movements/exercises do you use the kegs for? Are there any cool sled routines, or do you just throw on some weight and pull it around until you feel like puking (I think that would actually fall under the ‘cool’ category). I intend on doing about half of my leg workouts non-gym style, as in using the sled, maybe the kegs, plyos, and some other non-gym training methods (any other ideas would be great). I would like to work in a non-gym upper-body workout sometime also, but I don’t know enough exercises for this (any help would be great).
Thanks to any who offer advice.
