  • How to build a pulling sled

    As many of you know I am a fanatic about pulling sleds. One can be built for about 40 bucks. Here’s how:

    Get a piece of 1/4 inch steel plate at the scrap yard that is 21 inches by 24 inches. You will also need about a 12-15 inch piece of heavy wall 2 inch pipe.

    Have your welding/machine shop either bend the 24 inch end up 3 inches to make the lip, or cut off 3 inches and weld it on at an angle to make a lip.

    Have them weld the pipe smack dab in the middle of the 21 x 21 section, and then drill or punch a hole in the CENTER upper portion of the lip.

    My shop did all of the above for 25 bucks.

    Paint it black, and have fun!

    Here is a pic of mine. It just happens to weigh right on 45 lbs which is great for the mathematically challenged.

      That looks great. How do you incorporate it into your training? Leg days sorta like lunges?

      Being small should be a crime.
