  1. Would love a whole episode on sled. I dont care all that much about having a faster 40, but it is my all time favorite conditioning, fat burning finisher. Also great on leg day if I’m not feeling loading up my spine with a barbell.

  2. Yes please do a sled drag podcast on speed please. I believe that it get you faster and stringer because Mike alstott and peyton hillis pushed vehicles and they were tanks running the ball.
