Metabolic Monday Workout

Today’s WOD comes out of the essence of DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training. Moreover, how many true craftsmen/women are involved in the DVRT ‘Movement’. DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training is worldwide, yet still VERY hometown.

There are excellent Master Instructors tucked in to obscure niches and big cities alike. Most of the really good ones are NOT shouting from the roof tops or spamming people on flakebook they are out there….DOING WORK!

Training people…Using a system of movement to create something, someone, or just make themselves into better humans. 

This system is so….Simple, sooooo, common. That is so subtle in the prototypical fitness quest for COOL, new, or interesting…..

Often leaves the BEST in pile in the corner of the gym as another neat tool…..

Only to be brushed off every so often.

Today’s Ultimate Sandbag Training WOD involves everything that is DVRT, the system, the philosophy of training.

It shares how coaches thousands of miles apart can collaborate and change how each other think and develop. In this instance Raymond Lee (S. Korea) shot a simple video of some excellent DVRT to content.

In this video I expand that content into one version of what his concept meant to me.

We did all of this unknowingly or intentionally… it just happened organically.

We did this all within the structure of the system…. everything fits. There was no need to be the ‘tries too hard guy’ that is so often the norm in the ‘look what I invented’ fitness world.
