GORUCK Sandbag Deadlift

I wrote a post about DIY sandbag deadlifts a long time ago.  Here’s a new one using some new, better performing gear.  This is a 5×5 deadlift demonstration.  There are approximately 330 pounds of sand and plates loaded into a GORUCK sandbag, a GR1, and a 15L Bullet Ruck.  The lift ain’t pretty, but it gets the job done with minimal equipment–also perfect for at-home training in the early morning or late at night.  You don’t want to wake your family by throwing a bar around!

Let’s call this the first in a series of posts about how to improve strength quietly and efficiently.  Maybe we’ll call it “Silent Ninja Workouts” or something.  Regardless, a major part of being a martial artist is resourcefulness, so there you go.

You can watch the video after the jump.  Here are some pics to show the setup.

Lucky enough to grow up with the martial arts, I have felt their positive influence throughout my life and am especially interested in sharing these experiences with others. I enjoy working with youth and adults to give back some of what I've received. If you would like to learn more about Uechi-Ryu/Shohei-Ryu Karate, or if you want to find people to train with, please contact me. I am the head karate instructor for the Meriden Martial Arts Club.
