Josh Henkin, Creator of Dynamic Variable Resistance Training (DVRT) and the Ultimate Sandbag joins me for a great interview this week on the podcast.
This is a fast paced interview that's "loaded" with great content about a unique strength and conditioning method - DVRT, also known as "sandbag training" (but you'll learn why we should't necessarily call it that).
If you have't experienced DVRT, this will be a valuable learning session to get started with the training system.
As Josh mentions in the interview, always know "why" you do what you do.
The Turkish Get Up (TGU) is one of the most valuable exercises for every fitness enthusiast and athlete.

If there's a "breakthrough" exercise for most people, this is it.
In this week's podcast, I've got a 5 step process to get you focused on your most important goal.
This is a specific and actionable process you'll want to take action with if you're committed to getting results.
I'll walk you through the simple 5 step process.
Getting focused is a common stumbling block for many, but I've made the process easy and repeatable to achieve results in anything.

The barbellzercher squat has to be the best squat that most people never do.
