I went with Karl's suggestion involving a tire. Any idea what type of old tire I should be trying to find? A car tire? Truck tire? Seems like a car tire would be a bit light but maybe I'm missing something.

Thanks.

I figure this would be ideal for a tire drag! Maybe even some tire flipping.

If you've got some oxen or another one of those Euclids.

Thanks for the compliment but I think I'd better start a little smaller! :lol:

You can drag anything your surface will allow. I use sandbags, weight plates, a tire - you can use several, stones of various sizes. The wheelbarrow's a great idea. I made this: http://www.crossfit.com/discus/messages/26/24049.jpg

Let your imagination be your guide. More here for those of you with a thing for DIY.

I came up with my own solution. A sheet of thick plywood with wooden rails underneath, with a section of wooden ladder nailed to the top. An eyebolt through one end attached to the dragging belt that Gill sells.

I take stones and put them on top (between the rungs of the ladder). It's adjustable and I just need to drag the sled over to my rockpile to change weights.

Hey-

I built one just like Tony's and used it today after Angie. I went with the belt instead of the harness and a chain instead of the tow rope. 8 sprints of 60-70 yards and 2 backward drags just to get the feel of how it handles.

Its a screamer,

-K
