I used to be able to spend 2-2,5 hours in the gym almost everyday and I tailored everything around my training session. The food I was eating, all my other tasks that I needed to do and my recovery too. Sounds ideal? The thing is as I’m getting busier with my business commitments and my family life I value more and more the time I have. I still prioritize my daily training however there’s no way I’m able to spend 2 hours in the gym. Plus I work in a gym weekdays so I don’t really want to spend more time at the same place if I don’t have to.
Flows and complexes can be used for accomplishing different goals too other than pure strength work. They are ideal for recovery, finishing or part of any warm ups as well. As a coach I value the complexity of DVRT a lot as well as the freedom that I have within the system to come up with more specific solutions to my clients needs. Sometimes my own issues inspire me to find a way to get better at something. When I created my upcoming DVRT Ultimate Sandbag Training program I wanted to include some of my favorite flows that I like to use myself and give them to my clients.
- Part of the warm up (assuming foundations are right)
- As a finisher (pick 2-3 different ones and do them as a circuit for 3 rounds)
- Part of the main session (working on specific things, like hips, knees, core or building better lunges etc)
- Use them as a recovery session (as these are more mobility based, they’re perfect for that)
