It does take a leap of faith, to go against what everyone else is doing isn’t a very normal reaction. Being different for the sake of being different is much better. Doing something because it honestly makes you better is at the heart of our DVRT Ultimate Sandbag workouts.
Trust me, the easier path would be to simply show you how to use the Ultimate Sandbag as though it was JUST a different version of a barbell or kettlebell. Trying to have you possess a different purpose with your DVRT Ultimate Sandbag workouts is a far more challenging direction to go.
We do so though because the results we see from people who implement our DVRT Ultimate Sandbag workouts speak for themselves. Hearing stories or watching people at our DVRT events literally change dramatically in minutes gives us strong conviction in what we are doing.
How about you though? How can you have faith that the DVRT Ultimate Sandbag workouts are really what is the best thing for your fitness goals? Sharing science is something we will always focus upon, but bringing real world training to you too is something we don’t want to miss out upon. How are REAL coaches and trainers implementing DVRT Ultimate Sandbag workouts to establish great change in their training?
This came from Tanya Miszko Kefer, Ed.D., CSCS an avid fan of DVRT Ultimate Sandbag workouts, but also very detail oriented in making sure that the training she provides her clients actually creates results. Always interesting to see how DVRT Ultimate Sandbag workouts cross so many fitness goals and how “simple” looking actions can create such powerful results!
“I thought you’d find it interesting that the bird dog lateral bag drag (with mini bands on feet) elicited anywhere from a 75-92% heart rate max with our clients. Of course the bear hug squat jumped up anywhere from 80-98% max. It was great for our clients to see how hard they were working with the Ultimate Sandbags and that the “easy” exercises (i.e. bird dog bag drag) were really getting their heart rate up. For me, it was great to see the change in intensity from station to station. I program based on intervals, but having the heart rate info there validated their effort and intensity. We’re working with a high school senior hoping to get a D-I college wrestling scholarship! We’re having fun doing some Ultimate Sandbag ground work with him!”
The differences in every movement that the Ultimate Sandbag makes is very real and extremely impactful to the results of any training program. In order to demonstrate this point, DVRT Master, Drew McConaha, programmed a great DVRT complex.
This is just another complex of various movements, Drew does a great job using our DVRT system to create Ultimate Sandbag workouts that do so much more. Like what? Think about a three exercise workout that can do all this….
-Trains power, strength, and stability all at once.
-Challenges our body to be strong in all three planes of motion.
-Uses many movement patterns such as hip hinge, pulling, pushing, planking, lunging, balance, and anti-rotation in many different positions and directions.
-Develops both core and lower leg stability and strength.
-Builds movement accuracy and mobility in the typically most restricted areas of the body.
When you put our DVRT Ultimate Sandbag workouts in this context it is amazing how much more powerful your training becomes.
See if you can keep up and try 5 reps of each exercise in a row (split up if you have to with minimal rest) and see how many rounds you achieve in 20 minutes. Great DVRT Ultimate Sandbag workouts don’t have to take a lot of time, but they do have to be purposeful! These types of programs show how we can train hard AND smart!
