Template 2, Week 18: Simulating the Truck Pull

300 kilogram prowler pull, loaded with: 4 x 25s, 7 x 20s, 3 x 10s, 6 x 5s

OBVIOUSLY there are several differences between the strongman event 'the truck pull' and an exercise that can be achieved in a conventional setting; the prowler pull. For starter, there is a huge difference in the amount of weight that can feasibly be moved on a prowler versus a wheeled vehicle. While a truck will gather momentum, somewhat assisting with the pull if you can transfer enough energy to the wheels, the prowler is completely inert, wanting to stay right where it is at every step.

Today was a fun session. The prowler pull is something that I don't normally have the energy to do on events days that include stuff like heavy squats, yoke walk or deadlifts (events that are statistically much more likely to crop up in a competition), but I really enjoyed the novelty of it. With some more regularity I'll be prowler-pulling 350 kilograms and heavier in the coming months. If I can anchor a rope to one end of the runway, likely more.
