    I wanted to say exactly the same thing, It's a RDL/upright row hybrid.

    Pull ups with fat grips.

    It does make a difference, yes. Which should be obvious: the heavier you get, the more force you have to put into the track to accelerate and maintain maximum velocity. And that increase isn't linear...

    In your position, I would say to incorporate something like circuit training before the walking, rather than strength training/heavy lifting. It's much more aerobic based and your focus should really...
