Intense Ultimate Sandbag Training


sandbag exercises 


If you have even tried DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training for a few workouts or even exercises, you’ve probably noticed your heart rate goes through the roof! However, as we have discussed, is this always a good thing?

Ultimate Sandbag Training workouts are pretty impressive to what they can do for heart rate and intensity!

The important message I wanted you to gain from last week was the using heart rate is a great means to measure intensity. The harder the DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training workout, the higher the heart rate. In other words, you can’t blast yourself every workout. You are going to have to use some DVRT workouts where the heart is based upon a bit lower and others where it is higher.

Which DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training exercises really drive up that heart rate? There are two categories that we look at, high speed and high compression. Here is an example of the two:

High Speed DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training Exercises

-Rotational Lunges

-High Pulls

-Lateral Lunge Cleans


-Push Presses


High Compression DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training Exercises

-Lateral Bag Drags

-Front Loaded Squats

-Clean and Press

-Shoulder Step-ups

Combining the two during a DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training workout is ideal and that should make more sense why you see the workouts from us that you do! There is a third category too of DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training exercises. These are movements that do cause stress, but to a lesser degree. They are typically movements that require a great deal of movement, but at a slower tempo and lesser load. While these movements definitely do feel like work, you generally won’t see the spike in heart rate that you do with some of the above mentioned DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training exercises.

Examples of Movement Oriented DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training Exercises

-Leg Threading

-Shoulder Squats

-Bent-Over Rows

-Front Loaded Good Mornings

This means we have a lot of options in creating our DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training programs. If you look to really drive up that heart rate for the workout, you are going to use a majority combination of the first lists of DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training movements. If you are looking for a more moderate day, you will have a more even amount of exercises from all three series. Yes, don’t worry, we have plenty examples for you in upcoming videos or you can see how the DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training programs HERE

So, heart rate obviously addresses the overall workout intensity, but we can also use it to gage our rest times and work times during the workout. Usually we tell you how long to rest in your DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training workouts, but that doesn’t necessarily work for everyone. Many times, training variables need to be more specific to the individual. So, what you can actually use heart rate tracking for is to make your workouts the beset for you! Let me explain….

If during one of the DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training workouts your heart rate gets up to 95%, but by the time your rest interval is done you are only down to 90%, chances are the next set is going to be very compromised unless you are at a VERY high fitness level. The best thing to do would be to wait for the heart rate to come down to possibly an 80% level. This gives you a better opportunity to perform your next working set at a high level. After all, it isn’t just quantity we are looking for, but quality!

The same could be used during your DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training work times. If we have an interval set for 30 seconds and by 30 your heart rate is only at 70% and you were expecting to have an intense training day, then we can either raise the weight of the USB, the speed at which you were moving, or possibly (usually not the first choice) extend the working time. Typically if you increase the weight of your USB or the speed you will accomplish your goal of raising intensity.

All of a sudden you should see that your DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training workouts are becoming more customized. Simply by using a heart rate monitor to track some very important information about your training. I also suggest that you even keep an eye on the heart rate output of specific DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training exercises. That way you can start to know which ones fit in your high or moderate intensity categories. It is rare that I will make a workout that is hard and harder exercise one right after the other. The burnout on such training seems to be very high and we don’t get to work on much of a workout.

A secondary bonus you will notice in using your DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training with heart rate management, is that you go from just performing rep after rep, to having more of a purpose and focus in your workout. I will be the first one to admit it is more fun in any training situation to get instant feedback and direction with your training. That is why I believe DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training is anything BUT “dumbed down fitness”, in fact, I believe it is elevating our thoughts on fitness and giving us more exciting and dynamic ways to see ourselves reach our goals.
