Jillian Michaels Sled Workout

Intimidated by the Sled? This Circuit From Jillian Michaels Proves You Should Take It On

Jillian Michaels may be a pro in the gym — the former Biggest Loser trainer is no stranger to challenge circuits and expert-level moves — but she also knows how to create workouts that are achievable for all fitness levels. Take this sled circuit she shared on her Instagram, for example.

While the sled may be an intimidating piece of equipment in the gym no matter how long you've been working out, Jillian proves you can get creative with it by adjusting your form and attaching handled straps to it. Although Jillian stacked her sled with weight plates, you could also perform these without weights if you're a beginner.

She started the circuit by running the sled forward. She then pulled the sled with straps while running sideways, followed by lunging sled pushes. She continued by getting into a squat form and pulled the sled with her arms in a row stance, followed by bear crawls while pulling the sled forward. She suggested doing each move for 30 seconds, and doing them back-to-back for three total rounds. If you need to take a break, take a two or three-minute rest in between each round.

Although Jillian made this circuit look easy, it's definitely a challenge! It's a total-body workout that will get your heart rate up and incorporates functional movements. Hopefully, this video gets you motivated to take on the sled and mix up your gym routine!
