There are certain movies that you can quote in a generation that almost everyone seems to know. “So, you are saying there is a chance!” is of course a classic from Dumb and Dumber. Another personal favorite of mine though is from the movie “Something About Mary”. Of course this classic has more than a few great lines from it, but the discussion with a drifter and Ben Stiller about 7 minute abs is pretty awesome.
This parody of the fitness industry makes you laugh because of the great deal of truth to the general marketing of fitness. We can laugh at all these “super ab” programs, but they wouldn’t keep coming out with them if they didn’t sell!
Ben Stiller had the NERVE to ask about “6 minute abs”!
The goal of having good looking abs isn’t silly. However, learning the REAL way of getting them is important.
Good looking abs is a function of great workouts and nutrition. Both are very important and could be multiple blog posts for each. Let’s look at the one that DVRT Ultimate Sandbag workout programs can especially help, the workout portion!
With Crossfit, P90X, Insantiy, you name it, high intensity workouts are all the rage! So, what could DVRT Ultimate Sandbag workout programs offer that is any better?
DVRT Ultimate Sandbag workout programs are growing in popularity because of the results and what they can do that other programs and implements CAN NOT! What are they?
The Way You Hold It: In an upcoming study done at the University Wisconsin-Milwaukee, simply holding the Ultimate Sandbag in the Front Hold position actually stimulates a higher heart rate and burns more calories than holding dumbbells in the same position! All the various holding positions (over 10) can really hit the body in a whole new way!
The Way You Move: We have tested drills like the Ultimate Sandbag Rotational Lunge and Rotational Power Clean to their cousins, the Kettlebell Swing and Barbell Clean. What did we find? Even when the Kettlebell and Barbell cousins use significantly more weight (sometimes up to double the load) the heart rate and caloric expenditure in the DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Rotational Lunge and Rotational Power Clean still win! The combination of the movement of the body, the movement of the Ultimate Sandbag, and the specifically designed distribution of weight makes these drills power packed!
The Ultimate Sandbag Itself!: Usually I down play the power of the Ultimate Sandbag itself because I want you to focus on the right use of the DVRT system. But I would be lying if I didn’t say the way we designed the Ultimate Sandbag all the way back in 2005 would change how we look at fitness programs!
Why do Ultimate Sandbag Cleans feel heavier than those with other tools? The fact the weight is so far from the handles makes a big difference, especially in larger USBs.
Why are exercises like Front Loaded Ultimate Sandbag Squats harder than similar movements like Zercher Squats with a barbell? What Ultimate Sandbags possess that most other implements do not is a dimensional component. So, as Ultimate Sandbags go up in size they not only become heavier, but larger! This places way more stress on the core and the rest of the body.
Add in the fact that there is instability to the Ultimate Sandbag, you are using more muscles and that is the key to having more efficient and effective workouts.
You want to try a workout that would be actually considered 6 minute abs, try the complex in the DVRT Ultimate Sandbag workout above! Okay, not really 6 minutes, each round should take you no longer than 6 minutes, aim for 2-3 rounds total. Yea, ends up being around 12-18 minutes of work, but tell me if YOU don’t feel the Ultimate Sandbag difference!
