The TANK™ MX continues the evolution of this unique push sled on wheels. The core technology that makes all TANK™ models unique is that unlike resistance sleds, they can be run indoors or outdoors on any surface without gouging. Also on all TANK™ models the resistance increases the faster you push it, so each user can choose their resistance on the fly, without stopping to load or unload plates. Like the M4, the MX is bi-directional,eliminating the need to turn TANK™ around, which also reduces path width reserved for TANK™ runs.
Incorporating the TANK into your workout program offers limitless versatility. More than just a traditional resistance sled, the TANK can be pushed, pulled, towed or used as a stationary implement. With many different attachments and accessories, dull, boring workouts are a thing of the past.
Whether you’re new to fitness or a seasoned pro, the TANK is for everybody. With variable resistance levels, you can tailor the TANK to fit your workout needs from warmup to cooldown and anything in between.
When you walk backwards, you reach back with your toe and roll through your foot to your heel. This works the anterior tibialis (shin) muscle, as opposed to the gastrocnemius (calf) muscle, which tends to do all the work when you walk forward. Strengthening the shin muscles provides better balance which is more important as you age.
TANK training reverses the effects that time and traditional exercise methods place on your body. You are in effect, rebuilding your body from your feet up. By loading your toes (with weight) whether you’re pushing the TANK or pulling the TANK, you’re working the toes, feet, ankles, shins and calves. This is the new research that totally turns traditional learning upside down. The lower part of your body is needed more as you age and balance becomes a greater concern.
Whether you are young or old, an athlete or rehabbing an injury, TANK training will benefit you in a number of ways.
TANK training protects against:
Unlike friction sleds or ‘prowlers,’ TANK is controlled by magnetic resistance — meaning athletes don’t need to change out the weight for each user. By flipping the resistance lever, you can change the intensity of your workout without adding or removing heavy weight plates. Additionally, TANK is an all-surface weight sled with wheels, meaning it will not tear up your carpet or flooring.
No, you do not. Unlike traditional sleds, all of the resistance comes with the simple flip of the lever, thanks to TANK’s innovative braking system. Weight is only added to help with traction while pushing or pulling the sled if you are on a 'looser' surface.
Yes. TANK is coated with electrostatic paint, so you can use it outdoors, under all weather conditions, without fear of damaging the equipment. In addition, this is an all-surface fitness sled, meaning it was built to be used on a range of outdoor surfaces — from grass fields to turf tracks.
TANK users include everyone from NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB teams to assisted living communities and everything in between. Because TANK trains for deceleration, HIIT, and overall conditioning while still being gentle on joints, nearly every person can benefit from training on Torque’s premier workout sled.
