Joe begins his presentation by sharing how Dave Tate and Jim Wendler presented him with the prowler years ago. He remembers Jim's intricate directions for use, "add weight and push." Admittedly, Joe's implementation of the new elitefts product had many, MANY clients of his puking, laying flat on the ground, out of breath-- and exuding every other symptom imaginable induced by the prowler flu.
Since then, Joe has minimized the puke fest and now utilizes the prowler as a simple tool to improve speed.
A few reasons why prowler pushes improve acceleration:
- Can't push/drag without proper lean
- Can't push/drag if over-stride
- Can focus on direction of force application, shin angles, etc.
- Improves ground force production and mobility at specific joint angles
