Core training is nothing new to our discussion of DVRT Ultimate Sandbag exercises. We have spent A LOT of time laying a strong foundation because without such a base, doing anything “cool” is really impossible.
Trust me, I get the temptation to see something and go, “I want to do that!” Sometimes that can be a good thing because when you try to do it, you realize how important that base of good Ultimate Sandbag exercises really is to your success! That doesn’t mean we can’t get there though and we can’t bring in other tools to help us advance these Ultimate Sandbag exercises.
That is why when I first saw this series by Joanna Now I knew it was something I wanted to share. Not because it was just really cool and fun looking but because there was something deeper there.
I realize at first glance some people may think this is just “circus tricks”, of course there are always the haters, but that is because they are not willing to look deeper. They don’t understand what we are trying to accomplish with such DVRT Ultimate Sandbag exercises.
You will notice that Joanna uses the addition of the TRX for a few different reasons. The most obvious is that it provides us some instability. However, instability by itself is rather useless without the proper intent. If we use instability as a means of strengthening the chains of our body and additionally looking for hiding muscle weaknesses it can be a really powerful thing.
A less obvious idea is that she is using the combination of the TRX and Ultimate Sandbag exercises to bring in other planes of motion. This more “real world” form of training helps us teach the importance of not just producing strength, but also the ability to resist forces acting upon our body. That is why we keep saying DVRT isn’t just about what you lift, but also what you can resist.
These types of DVRT Ultimate Sandbag exercise are great examples of how we can build more sophisticated, challenging, and fun core strengthening drills. However, you can only do them if you place a lot of time into building that foundation of good movement habits! Like the ones we describe in our blogs HERE and HERE.
