Here’s the Torque Tank from Torque Fitness – it’s a Push Sled.
This push sled works great where others don’t – because it has wheels.
Push Sled is a remarkably versatile piece of equipment that grants many advantages and delivers impressive outcomes in a minimal amount of time. It works your abdominals, quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings, calves, chest, hip flexors, triceps, and shoulders. It is a kind of low-impact cardio exercise, which is particularly helpful for runners.
Here are some of the styles we are going to look at:
Torque TANK Push Sleds – Overview
What distinguishes all Torque Fitness TANKS is their ability to run both indoors and outdoors on any surface without gouging. They also increase the resistance the faster you push it, so you can choose the resistance on the fly without stopping to load or unload plates. Both M4 and MX are bi-directional, eradicating the need to turn TANK around, decreasing the path width reserved for TANK runs.
You can decrease the level of resistance depending on your age, conditioning level, and fitness goals. All TANK models allow HIIT in which blasts of acceleration and speed for 14 minutes of a TANK workout is the same as an hour on a treadmill. They all come with a ten-year warranty on frame and welds and one year on parts and finish on workmanship and materials.
MX resistance can be raised to 25% on all four wheels with the flip of the MX lever. This is in addition to the three levels of resistance on the M4. To manage the added resistance, the MX tires are made larger and wider than the earlier versions. A lower push point is indicated on the handles to add variety to the targeting of muscle groups.
For athletes who want to achieve more intense towing exercises, an optional weight horn is available. You can stack MX higher with an optional Stacking Kit for more compact storage and transportation. With an optional Stacking Kit, MX can be stacked three high for more compact storage and transport. MX handles are removable without tools and can be stored within the stack.
