Sled pulling tips
I like pulling a sled for conditioning work, it's never boring and makes me feel like a truck. I generally pull it quite heavy and try to add weight when I can. But every once in a while I will take off a bunch of the weight and pull it much lighter. Using a lighter sled, taking very large steps, and leading with the heel will really fry your hamstrings.
Feel free to add your sled pulling tips to this thread. I am always looking for ways to make the sled more enjoyable and productive.

I don't know what tips I can offer.
Load dictates angle.
I think you should always try to accelerate.
Cross body harness is fun and an awesome anti-rotation workout.
For fun I switch off with my dog. I have a size advantage, but, he's in 4 wheel drive.
