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.
