Gymchat Bite 1 - Sled Training (Frank DiMeo)

What, how and why.

Long-term readers/viewers may remember the 'Gymchat Bites' - shorter versions of our weekly show, looking closely at a single exercise/technique/piece of equipment.
We'll be returning to this format (in addition to the regular, full-length show) from time to time, beginning with a discussion on a wonderful exercise : Sled Dragging. Helping us tackle this one is Strength Coach Frank DiMeo, joined by Personal Trainer (and Strength Athlete) Josh Hewett. Fantastic.

NB : If you'd like to take part in an upcoming discussion (either a Gymchat Bite, or the full-length show), drop Josh a line. You'll find all his contact details here.

Brilliant device. If your shoulders aren't quite as flexible as you'd like, grab The Rotater. Love it.
And if you've already got one - or are looking for another type of device - swing by the Straight to the Bar Store. It's all in there.
