Lately with the busyness of the holidays I have been all about quick (and of course, effective) workouts. Between holiday shopping, festivities and the diminishing daylight hours, I just want to be able to get a workout in without having to dedicate hours on end to it (running, I’m looking at you).
Yes, I LOVE running but since I am not technically training for a race on the moment, the idea of dedicating 1+ hours to a run just seems cumbersome. I want my workouts to be fun (notice I didn’t say easy) and go for a run when I feel like it, not because I have to.
So, for the next month or so in this “off season” of running I have decided to focus my time on strength training but in a way that I am going to work my total body as opposed to isolation work…nobody got time fo’ that!
While I have programed my own strength training schedule before, I was thankful when DVRT Ultimate Sandbag came out with their brand spankin’ new DVRT Burn Program.
It’s a power packed program that combines the Ultimate Sandbag, kettlebells and bodyweight exercises designed to provide quick, effective workouts that’ll really make you feel the fire.
I’m on week two and let me tell you…I’m feeling the fire.
Here’s a breakdown of what it entails:
- 16 total workouts that combine Ultimate Sandbag, kettlebell and bodyweight movements.
- Suggested schedule which provides 3 months worth of training.
- Schedule is framed around 3 days a week with other days being rest or active recovery (low impact DVRT programs, walking, hiking, easy running, etc).
- Video demonstration of each workout.
- Modification suggestions if you only have 1 KB or 1 size sandbag.
Like I said, I am two weeks into it and have now completed Incinerate, Smolder, Torch and Singe- did I mention that they all have fun theme names? Makes it sound just that much more badass, right?
The best part about these workouts is that they take like no time at all (under 30 minutes) BUT you still feel like you really worked for it. Don’t be fooled, the workouts are anything but easy and they’re most certainly effective.
Even with all the strength training I do, I still find that I will wake up sore (the good kind of sore) the next day after these workouts and if I am feeling particularly tired or need to take it down a notch all I have to do is lower my number of sets or reduce my work period and I’ll still be able to get in a good sweat sesh.
So here is my suggestion- if you have some kettlebells and a sandbag or have been DYING to get a sandbag or it’s on your holiday wish list (ps. they’re on sale) then I 100% recommend you checkout DVRT Burn. It’s available for download for only $14.97 which, if you ask me, is a pretty awesome bargain considering you get a 12 week workout program!
