Sleds

What style sled is best for asphalt and dirt of varying consistency? Mostly asphalt. A three point of contact Butcher style or a two rail style? I'm talking Rogue sleds.

Gracias

Re: Sleds

I have a butcher and that thing is so loud I rarely use it. I would definitely go w/ the 2 rail design. Wish I would have.

Re: Sleds

I would think the dog sled with plastic skis would be the way to go. I have long thought about getting one until I then think about having to use it........yuck.

Re: Sleds

Thanks for the info... Not that you care but the reason I figured I need one is because I was getting ready (not doing anything, procrastinating, basically) to warm up to lift when I had to help my neighbor push a car. After pushing the car about 200 yards, I discovered I was nice and warmed up.

Having a sled would be nice to look at gathering dust next to my Airdyne.

Re: Sleds

honestly I would get one of the echo sleds that you drag. I have one of those and I use it a lot. It can pulled on any surface and you get more or less the same workout.

Never use the butcher. And it takes a lot of space.
