Troy Anderson, DVRT Master (Alpha Snatch Creator)


Today’s piece bought to you by ‘bad’ and necessity. First let’s start with the bad part. Here in old youtube land it is free to see a whole lotta bad when it comes to “sandbag training”. 

I just so happens that I self-inflicted some on myself the other day; and my eyeballs are still throbbing from the exposure. 

(let me just say here in the DVRT community we might not be right; but we do more to try to get towards right than any other component when it comes to sandbag training, by that standard we are the foremost experts, simple) 

But that exposure gave me an idea. 

In conjunction with that exposure I love to snatch and here in the  “Root Cellar” the ceiling is too  low for snatching my beloved kettlebell. Heck they are even too low to Clean & Press an Ultimate Sandbag. 

So I needed a solution and today DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training MAX Lunge Snatch provided just that. We don’t often get to use the snatch grip handles on the Ultimate Sandbag but when the opportunity arises we should give it a full go. 

What that MAX lunge snatch does is gives me a more complex drills which precipitates using a smaller bag because the complexing of the drill has gone UP. 

I’ve long been a fan of the split snatch, from the by-gone era of olympic lifting. As with all snatching, it is a confluence of violence and grace; but with split snatch you really take that too another level. 


Lifting with the right intent does anything but making lack flexibility and agility!

With the DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training MAX Lunge Snatch we have a kissing cousin to the barbell split snatch. Ultimately what means to  me is I can snatch in the  “Root Cellar” and that is damn exciting. 

So as we often do with DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training WOD we layer a complex drill that challenges stability, and requires power production. 

Some high octane stuff there. 

With blunt force trauma drill like the burpees. Everyone knows and hate’s it with a passion.
