TRAIN TO COMPETE, TRAIN TO LIVE.
If you need to be explosive during a game, on an obstacle course or during your next WOD, you will need to train to be explosive.
Brute Force believes that a true Functional Athlete is looking to reach the highest levels of training to accomplish their ultimate goals in their specific sport and therefore it is imperative to train the whole human movement.
The human body only moves in 5 ways, Push, Pull, Level Change, Propulsion and Rotation. Training the whole human movement will benefit anyone and ultimately help everyone reach whatever goal they are chasing from elite athletes to those who just want to be healthier and move better.
Some call sandbag training unconventional, we call it real. Fact is, life is not lived in perfect posture with total balance and stability. The problem is traditional functional training methods fail to prepare you for these challenges. From getting in and out of your car and picking up your kids to training for triathlons or fighting fires, sandbag and unstable load training has you covered.
Sandbag training is all about unstable loads (the sand inside the Brute Force Sandbag filler shifts and moves while you do) giving you a much more dynamic and challenging experience. The shifting load of your sandbag forces you to recruit your body’s stabilizer muscles, building coordinated strength and balance throughout your body. The lab geeks call this Neuro-Muscular Coordination. It’s a good thing, and you definitely want it.
In sports as in life, we need to be able to access strength at a moment’s notice and move quickly and easily with balance – so training in a manner that directly relates to these needs is key. Unstable Load Training with sandbags is the answer for success on and off the field, in the box or on the cargo net.
