The development of resisted sprinting methods, such as sled, parachute and bungees, is providing coaches with alternative and/or supplementary training strategies to the more classic power training techniques such as weightlifting or plyometric training. The aim of this review article is to provide a brief overview of the phases of sprinting relevant to resisted sled training (RST), examine the current RST literature base and provide some recommendations for the use of RST in practice, as well as to identify directions for further research.
