The article discusses the sled sprint or "cleaning the floor" exercise. The author tried the exercise with different athletes to develop leg strength and power having them perform four sets using 15 meters distance with 25 kilograms load wrap for both male and female once they are familiar with the exercise. According to the author, athletes enjoyed it and that it generates enthusiasm and suits application for highly motivated athletes.
