Sled Dragging for Athletic Development


"Sled dragging is a great tool for building your work capacity, improving your recovery between  heavy training sessions and building serious levels of total body strength!"


Dear Strength Athlete or Fitness Professional:

Are you looking for a versatile training implement that will yield a variety of exercises but don't want to bust your budget?

The implement you need is the Sled. Sled dragging is becoming one of the most commonly used training strategies at the university level for conditioning purposes. 

Are you tired of being out-conditioned on the field or on the court?

Are you tired of seeing your team get manhandled day in and day out with no end in sight?

Does next year's salary depend on this year's performance?

Hello, we are the Diesel Crew and we are experienced Strength and Conditioning Coaches, and competitive strength athletes.

We've just about seen it all in the strength and conditioning field, and we've tried just about all of the gadgets and gimmicks too.

We firmly believe that sled dragging is a practice each athlete should take up to get the most out of their training time and to be the best they can in competition.

We also believe that sled dragging doesn't have to be the same old chore that it normally turns out to be. You know the deal. Load the weight on the sled, attach the sled to the harness, put the harness onto your body. Now DRAG!


With this complete training resource, you will be able to get the training benefits from sled dragging 50 fold with a variety of exercises we have drawn up and most people have never before seen. Your athletes aren't going to know what hit them after just one workout with this armory of exercises.

What are you waiting for? Get your hands on this manual right away!



When we decided to offer a sled training manual, we kept two things in mind to separate ours from the rest of the books out there. First, it had to be different not just for the sake of being different. It had to follow the Total Performance Sports philosophy of hard work and not taking shortcuts, it had to have legitimate exercises that you have not seen before, not fluff and it had to fit our reputation for excellence. Second, it had to be written by someone who walks the walk and lives it. We did not want a keyboard guru, who pumps out three articles a week of new training programs, penning something with our name on it. It had to be written by someone real, someone who exemplified the qualities we wanted and someone who could take sled dragging to the next level. And only one name was considered: The Diesel Crew.

The Diesel Crew is known throughout the industry as leaders in the strength field and anyone who knows them, knows they are the real deal. Jedd Smitty have outdone themselves with this manual. It is a great product.

I guarantee you the exercises in this book are ones you have never seen and I also guarantee that if you do these exercises, you will get strong, you will get fit and you will get lean.

The Diesel Crew shows you how, now all you have to do is the work.

I train for GPP for Military/Law Enforcement.
I use an improvised tire sled and drag it on sidewalk.
It does not slide very well and hops as it sticks to the ground. I have used relatively light weight (50 to 70 lbs).
Since getting the manual,
I use much heavier weight
Twice what I previously used!
What a world of difference!
Sled dragging is a great drill for developing total body power and extending the time where a max effort can be maintained!
An Awesome Addition to any athletes training library!

"Since finishing my collegiate athletic career, I've had plenty of time to think about the conditioning programs I used to be involved in as a student athlete. I only wish I knew about sled dragging when I was a pitcher at school. I am convinced that if I had gotten my hands on a sled, a harness and some other simple training implements, I could have been much better conditioned. The strength and conditioning field has made amazing advances, but the necessities of the strength and conditioning arsenal are still very simple. Take advantage of the simplicity of sled dragging and get this manual so you can ACHIEVE BEYOND POTENTIAL!
