This past weekend I had the pleasure of running our first DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training certification of 2015 at a very innovative gym. Next Level fitness in Palm Springs in the birthplace of the Fit in 42 training program.
These guys know how to get people results and know how to get them to people fast! You just have to walk down their halls or talk to a few of their clients to know how they make their programs so effective but also deliver a great experience to their clients.
That is why when I see the eyes light up when we show them our DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training program I get excited. To see the light bulbs go off and hear things like, “man, I am feeling good right now!” is just really cool!
My goal this year was to make DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training even more accessible and enthusiasts alike. With SO much information and concepts I want to share with people it can be a bit overwhelming. That is why this weekend I told our group DVRT REALLY isn’t complicated, but just a new way of thinking.
Seriously! If I just told you I want you to think about how you hold the Ultimate Sandbag, how you stand when you lift, what planes of motion you are using, and do you want your Ultimate Sandbag to be stable or unstable you probably wouldn’t think it was all that crazy. The truth is that is really the foundation of DVRT.
That is why I end each of our certifications with a workout that shows how simple you can make things yet, really demonstrate the incredible power of the system. I purposefully don’t pick the DVRT drills you might think. No Rotational Lunges, no Clean and Press. I slow things down, make people think about fundamentals. Guess what? This actually makes the workout far more challenging than most would think!
Try it for yourself. Put 20 minutes on the clock. You are going to try to do as many rounds of this DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training circuit as possible. Now, you can’t speed up the reps, in fact, I want you to aim to deliberately hit slow and PERFECT reps each time. That means you can only alter how much rest you take!
I call it our 3 x 5 program. Three DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training exercises, 5 repetitions of each exercise (if there are two sides you have to do 5 on each).
-Rear Step Deadlifts to Rows
-1 1/4 Front Loaded Squats
You should aim to 6 rounds. If you can do more, then you need to go up in weight of your Ultimate Sandbag. No matter how simple this workout looks, you will find if you put purpose behind your movements it will be a super challenging way to hit your entire body in just three moves!
