How do you use an exercise sled?
- Put a light to medium load (about 25 percent of your max load) onto the sled.
- Use a high-grip hand position to hold the poles.
- Push the sled forward at a moderate pace for 1 minute.
- Rest for up to 1 minute.
- Repeat 5–10 times.
Are sled pulls good for knees?
Backwards sled pulls represent a great exercise because they let you work out your quads without putting pressure on the knee joint. Each step mimics the movement of a terminal knee extension, which is a popular movement used by physical therapists as they rehab your knees following surgery or an injury.
