For our FIRST DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training workout of 2015 I wanted to bring you something different. Who better to do so than DVRT Master Chief Instructor, Troy Anderson. Coach Anderson always has really interesting and fun ways to look at training programs. When he told me he had an idea to challenge all the “good stuff” I couldn’t wait to see what he was up to.
Wait, what is the “good stuff”? Troy is a master at making all around fitness programs. Having grown up on a farm, served in the military, and being an athlete, he knows better than ANYONE that strength without conditioning doesn’t work in the real world. Endurance without strength isn’t the answer either. Lifting weights just up and down makes you look good in the gym, but doesn’t bring your strength to life, which is what DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training is ALL about!
That is why this DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training complex is so good. It hits EVERYTHING including a strong core, mobility, and tests how you REALLY move! It is such a unique little workout for a few reasons. For one, Troy demonstrates probably one of the least used, but really cool aspects of DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training the off-set grip. The what?!
People are so anxious to get to training they often miss some of the little details we have used that have make DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training just so powerful and versatile. That means learning how to make Ultimate Sandbags into one arm exercises. You see most people think and try to use our Suitcase handle on our Ultimate Sandbag to create some one arm exercises. That doesn’t really work so hot, that handle has a purpose, but that is not it!
Now when you combine that off-set grip with movements in different angles and positions, you really work muscles in the body you didn’t know you had! Yea, Troy doesn’t just ask you to clean, or squat, or even just lunge. No! He uses the DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training concepts of adding layers of complexity to take some traditional movements and make them about 100 times better!
I could keep going on and on about how awesome this little series is, but nothing is better than having YOU try it! Actually after Troy did it just the other day, he had to text me to tell me, “wow, that workout was WAY tougher than even I though it was going to be!” Um, yea, the challenge is laid out.
How do you do this for a workout? A great way is to set a timer for 15 minutes. Perform one set of three reps of each movement, rest as little as you need and then go the other side. Keep alternating sides for the 15 minutes and see how many total sets you can get. Let’s welcome 2015 with a giant bang!
