Everyone Hates the Sleds

In the JunkYard there is no other thing dreaded more than the SLED.

We use two of them, and it is definitely a Love/Hate relationship.

There is no other activity in the Junkyard that brings you closer to puking (or puking consecutive days) than sled work.

The upside is that this activity burns the most amount of calories. It is by far the best bang for the buck.

And while it can kick the shit out of you, nothing comes close in improving your cardio vascular endurance and capacity.

Here are some examples of the work we do….

1. Weighted Sled Pushes

The pics show it all, there is nothing else for me to say. See you in the JunkYard !

Junkyard Functional Training

Sci-Unison Fitness Junkyard Training has many benefits. One of them is the functional training aspect.

SUFJYT helps to supplement any weight training program. The movements and exercises performed during JunkYard sessions are much different than most exercises performed in the gym. This leads to more muscle stimulation and fiber recruitment.

One example is the sledgehammer work performed with the giant tire. This exercise help strengthen the shoulders, back, and core.

Another example is the many things that can be performed using the Devastator Equipment. This custom built unit allows multiple people to work different muscle groups simultaneously. There are plenty of band attachments on this machine to allow clients to hit a wide array of of body parts.
