The Prowler is a functional training tool that helps improve an athlete’s speed and acceleration. This can be used by any athlete of any age or ability. We use the Prowler a lot with our FAST camp kids and our Butts and Guts adult classes too, where it is great as a fat blaster. The great thing about the Prowler is you can load it up with plates and train heavy and do slow pushes to work on your power or lighter weight to do sprint/speed work.
The Prowler is a great finisher to any leg workout!! In this video, Team Canada baseball player Jamie Richmond is using light to medium weight with two 25 pound plates for sprints.
We use Prowler Sprints with athletes in every sport. You can add single leg variations (very advanced) as well as using the lower set grip for pushing which will engage even more of the core. You can also set up obstacle courses if you have the width to do so, so that the push is not always done in a linear plane. This is a great finisher on a training day and if you have two of them, you can use as a team building relay race!!!
