It was a pretty simple question, yet the answer I couldn’t avoid being much more.
“What is DVRT?” I was asked by a Japanese reporter during my recent trip for our first DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training certification in Japan.
After all, what does “Dynamic Variable Resistance Training” really mean? Why isn’t it JUST Ultimate Sandbag Training? Isn’t that what we use, what we are known for?
It is probably THE most common mistake people make when it comes to really understanding what we are about and why we are DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training. I see it all the time in fact on social media.
People show the Ultimate Sandbag, they show themselves trying to lift the Ultimate Sandbag, heck they show clients using the Ultimate Sandbag. All things I GREATLY appreciate, but having the right tool is only one part of DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training.
Most people don’t know why we designed the Ultimate Sandbag the way we have and why we have seen various evolutions over the years. Sure, part of it is working hard to make it the most durable and comfortable piece of fitness equipment, but still only part!
We have a purpose, we have a plan, we have a strategy for fitness. When you go beyond just the “Ultimate Sandbag Training” part, you begin to see that the USB is simply our tool. The philosophy, the reasoning, the teaching, is what makes us so emphatic that DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training is THE most powerful fitness system.
That is all due to the system, DVRT. How you apply the USB, WHY you apply the USB, makes all the difference in the world. Unfortunately people use the USB WRONG all the time! I can’t tell you how many people have attended our DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training certifications and tell us that they had been watching our Youtube videos for years only to learn they were using the program all wrong.
I can’t completely blame people, we do show workouts and exercises, sometimes it can be easy to gloss over the why’s and just focus on the cool, unique exercises that you see in the videos. After all, the large percentage of fitness equipment even promotes themselves as “just something different”.
Why is a biceps curl here any different than a biceps curl there? Why is a squat here different than a squat here? Most people implement such changes purely for variety sake. To me, that simply isn’t good enough!
So, what is DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training? The philosophy I will share with may or may not answer the question. “A systematic approach to improving and then challenging functional human movement.” I did warn you, that was a philosophy. What does it all mean?
DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training tries to teach people how to connect to their bodies. How to use the natural systems in our incredibly sophisticated body to enhance how we move, how we perform, and how we feel.
Okay, that STILL doesn’t answer the question! At our base level we are teaching first how to establish foundational movements. We want you to learn how to optimally perform base level functional movements so that we can build complexity over time.
How does that relate to YOUR goals? DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training is set-up to be highly adaptive to any goal. If your goal is fat loss, you will find that our DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training has no equal in creating high levels of energy expenditure, but lean muscle gain. People are time and time again astounded how they make such rapid fat loss changes and muscle gain improvements with DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training.
Goal is athletics? No program creates a better bridge from the training room to the competitive environment than DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training. That is why some of the top Strength & Conditioning coaches implement DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training for their athletes training.
Trying to overcome an injury? DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training has progressive and incremental programs to help a wide array of people trying to beat chronic injuries come back stronger than ever. That is why we are one of the few programs, not equipment companies, that have physical therapists, doctors, and athletic trainers as part of their team.
I’ve included today a better real world example of what DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training is all about. DVRT Master Instructor and injury prevention specialist, Mitch Hauschildt has created an innovative corrective exercise program for DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training. Today I want to share with you one of the coolest ideas I have seen in a while and this training video shows how DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training is not a “fitness sandbag”, but a SOLUTION to a wide array of fitness goals.
