As the popularity of functional fitness continues to surge, some exercises have emerged as sort of poster children for the genre. These dynamic, Instagram-friendly movements—usually involving advanced apparatus like sleds and battle ropes—do well to pique the curiosity of the mainstream and attract newcomers to this style of training.

That’s where MH Workshop comes in. It's a new events series that brings together MH readers and editors for exclusive fitness and wellness experiences led by the top instructors, coaches, and experts in the industry.

[post_ads]In the video above, watch as Dogpound founding trainer KC McLoughlin demonstrates and provides tips on how to push a weighted sled with perfect form to reap maximum results.

A powerful posterior chain movement, the sled push will tax your glutes and light up your core. Best of all, it can be beneficial to your training regardless of whether your goal is to pack on new muscle or fine-tune your conditioning. “I like to do it as a strength builder and walk with it,” McLoughlin says. “If you want to go for a performance-based sled push, you’re going to want to run with it. ”

Staying low, maintaining a neutral spine, and driving through your legs are key, McLoughlin says. Check out the video for even more tips, and sign up to experience MH Workshop in person at our next event!
