Ep. 49: DVRT-The Ultimate Sandbag

DVRT (dynamic variable resistance training) is a systems based on training and stressing your body through all the planes of motion.  It introduces implements and movements that will challenge not just your stability but also your mobility through all your joints.  The implement most commonly used is the ultimate sand bag that has almost endless options to get creative with your training.

We stood up with Cory Cripe who is a Master DVRT Trainer and owner of Fitness Lying Down in La Crosse, WI and he gave us a full run down of the DVRT system.  We talk about all the applications of the system and how it can be helpful from eliminating pain, to getting strong and even increasing performance.  If you have ever been curious about training with sandbags you'll want to hear this.
