I don't know what the weight of the sled is, never factored that in. I'm making good power again, I just need to raise my muscle speeds.
I've always guestimated the sled to be 45 lbs...but I don't factor it in either.

Like Jeff, I'll normally rep (10 reps) with 14 plates. By the third set, the last 5 truly suck.

I'll do one warmup set of 20 reps with 8 plates, then 1 set of 14 reps of 12, then 3 sets of 10 with 14.


My best ever max was way back in 1997, when I did 20 plates. (9 per side, and 2 on top)...I did it 3 times and bailed out on the 4th. 990 lbs in just plates.

Mo', Jeff - Enough with the measuring up of plates and reps and all that blah blah. Just measure up and be done with it.

That's why running beats cycling when you're pressed for time...

Yeah, I sweated in line at Chipotle waiting for my burrito.... and I'll be sweating again once I start eating all the hot sauce they put on it...
