I am joined by the creator of DVRT The Ultimate Sandbag Training System, Josh Henkin, to talk about the theory behind sandbag exercises, the different levels and 7 patterns of DVRT’s training program, and how simply shifting your movement with the sandbag will change the resistance, force, and intensity.
If you’re looking for a new type of exercise or want to build strong muscle, Josh gives a lot of great tips on how to do that with sandbags vs. traditional weight lifting.
DVRT The Ultimate Sandbag Training System
In the full-contact arena, athletes contend with an ever-shifting set of challenges: sudden changes in velocity, power, force, weight, and energy demand. The athlete needs to withstand powerful blows directed at any part of the body, to accelerate and decelerate at a moment’s notice, to strike back with blinding power and to remain stable in a highly unstable environment. The athlete needs to be this dynamic-while simultaneously minimizing the risk of personal injury. He needs a cat’s agile movement skills, a bull’s rock-like strength, and a stallion’s enduring power.
