3 Powerful Total Body Workouts That Can Be Done Anywhere

sandbag fitness equipment

Something we are really wanting to help people in seeing is how easy it is to use our DVRT system to give great total body workouts. Those that are effective, challenging, fun, and purposeful. When you use many of our DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training exercise that you don’t have to perform a million different movements to hit all the muscles in your body, you can actually train more efficiently!

I wanted to not just discuss these ideas, but highlight someone who does it really well! Lina Midla does a great job featuring not just our DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training exercises, but how to put the pieces together in such total body workouts. The reason I wanted to share some of these total-body workouts by Lina is that she shows how we transform the familiar and expose you to smarter functional fitness through the principles of DVRT. The 3 principles you should really think about are…

-The load position (where do we place the Ultimate Sandbag on our body or hold it)

-The body position (what stance do we use when we perform the exercise as we often change the stance to increase the effectiveness and challenges of the movement)

-The plane of motion (think of this as the direction in training) 

These Ultimate Sandbag Training concepts aren’t complicated, they are just unfamiliar to most. However, using them makes you use more muscles, build functional training qualities like stability and mobility along with your strength training, and help us see how much we can achieve with relatively little equipment and space! Sounds pretty perfect right now huh?!

Don’t miss 25% off plus (this includes our great online certifications/courses)  and when you invest in any of our Ultimate Sandbags you will get $25 towards any of our DVRT workout programs (including some of our corrective exercise workout programs, but not courses).

Now, I chose somewhat advanced total-body workouts from Lina, but I wanted to show not only how we progress DVRT but how a busy mom, wife, and business owner can make her fitness a priority by not making it a marathon, but something very thoughtful and efficient.

I also wanted to highlight these total-body workouts because a lot of people wonder how they are going to change the weight of the Ultimate Sandbag workouts. We don’t typically change the weight because we don’t have to (as we have better options) and it really isn’t practical. At the same time, we don’t think you need an Ultimate Sandbag for every 5 pounds you want to go up and go down. Don’t get me wrong, if you WANT to do this that’s fine with me as I have rescue dogs to feed:) However, we think that is missing the point of what we teach in our DVRT (Dynamic Variable Resistance Training) system. Our goal is to give you better solutions to your training goals and that happens to be showing you how to accomplish more with less!
