    Does anyone know anything about it...it's like General ...something. Also, has anyone here built a sled (ones with weights) and you attached it to your waist and walk around? I'm thinking of building one and using it out at the park this summer.

    i was actually going to start a thread on this.
    anyone here do GPP at home?

    i dont have or can use a sled, so thats out, so ive improvised.

    here are mine:
    wheelbarrow- using 5-6 bags of cement.
    weighted jumps - hold a bag of cement and jump while tucking legs as best you can.

    (obviously work around the house is always good. shovelling snow, using an ax or pick, etc)

    anyone else care to provide some ideas? :)

    I used to work in the warehouse at Circuit City. Now I'm the merchandising manager but on truck days I still like to go back to the warehouse and get a decent GPP workout in.

    I lift all of the TVs from 45 to 180lbs by hand and grab stacks of 200lb+ TVs with the handtruck (sometimes I stack them 3 high). Big screens are always fun to handle because the large size of the boxes means you have to figure out how to lift them even though some of them aren't very heavy (42" sony LCD projection tv in the box is only 100lbs or so) their size makes them very cumbersome.

    I used to do alot of "weighted" jumping exercises when I was practicing martial arts.
