    I have seen this as a conditioning tool on more than one site, and I think it would be pretty fun. Do I just put the car in neutral and push? I think it's this easy, but I feel like there may be something else to it I just can't think of. To start I'll use my 92 Buick LeSabre and then graduate to my 94 Ford Explorer after I get the hang of it, since the Buick isn't that big anyway.

    Car pushes are a little easier to do unless you have a harness and a place to attatch the rope. Basics are to have a driver in it and put it in neutral, seems obvious but get even a slight downhill angle and you will not catch that car again. Make sure that you use a very slight incline for it or at minimal flat ground or you just end up running behind the car.

    Another good approach is to do 2 sets of 2 guys in a HIIT method, we would make a circular track around 50m and sprint it, get to the point and switch people. You would only get a rest when you were sitting in the car.

    If you are on flat ground and aren't pushing in a straight line, you'll find the quads will need extinguishing before too long. It becomes hard in short order.

    Or get some rope and attach it with the trailer hook. Place your feet on something solid like a big tire and start pulling. Good thig with a big tire is that if the car starts roling towards you, your somewhat safe behind it.
