people come to this web site and think that bodyweight exercises
are the only thing I focus on. Initially, this might seem
to be the case but as you search through the entire site you
see that I utilize many different training tools and methods
to accomplish what I believe to be TOTAL FITNESS.
sandbags, climbing ropes...you
name it! If there's a tool that I can use to pull
myself, and those that train with me, out of my comfort zone
and into a new realm of physical or mental
strength then you can bet that I'm going to use it!
Heavy bags were
one of the first things I used when I started training with
Egan Inoue. The challenge presented by sandbags is unique
in that the bag almost feels "alive" in
your hands when you're trying to manipulate it to a certain
position. Trust me when I tell you that picking up
a 150 pound sandbag and lifting it over your head is much
harder than picking up a barbell that weighs the same amount!
The shifting sand, poor hand-holds, and offset center of gravity
all collaborate to make your body work harder than it ever
The lift I'm
showing you here on this page is a definite ass kicker. For
many people, simply lifting the bag up to their shoulder is
more than enough. You should know by now that I always
like to push things just a little bit further than the average
person. Why? Because:
men go nowhere. Extraordinary men do.
It's that simple.
Now, get your sandbag out and prepare to push yourself to
new levels of greatness!
