Accelerated Muscular Devlopment...With Sandbags & Kettlebells!
Hey guys, I hope everyone had a great weekend and If you live in New England then you I hope definately enjoyed the beautiful weather and maybe got some outdoor training in!
Speaking of outdoor training, Jim Smith over at Diesel Crew has put out his 3rd installment of their sandbag and kettlebell training program. If you already didn't know, Jim is also the creator AMD - Accelerated Muscular Devlopment, a super powerful muscle and strength building system. What Jim has done is taken the proven AMD system and has applied it to sandbag and kettlebell training - which is right up your ally! Really, this is great stuff and the fact that it's F-R-E-E makes it a no brainer to at least give an honest try!
All of the workouts are posted on the Diesel site, but for convenience sake, here they are right here...
Week 1 (also posted a few weeks ago on this blog):
1) Sandbag Clean and Press, 3x6
2) Sandbag Clean and Squat, 4x8
3) Sandbag Floor Press, 4x8
4) Sandbag Good Morning, 3x12
1) Sandbag Back Squats, 4x8
2) Sandbag Lunges, 3x6 each leg
3) Kettlebell Swings, 4x15
4) Kettlebell Step-up to Press, 3x6 each leg
1) Sandbag Overhead Squat, 3×8
2) Sandbag Rows, 4×10
3) Sandbag Rowed Good Mornings, 4×8
4) Sandbag Turkish Get-ups, 3×8
So that's 3 kickass (and free) sandbag and kettlebell routines that you can use throughout the course of the week or as an "odd object day" in addition to your regular barbell and dumbbell training.
P.S. Don't forget to take a look at AMD - Accelerated Muscular Devlopment and get yourself a copy TODAY. Action takers only, though....the weak get eaten!
