Strength training doesn't have to be all about pumping iron, using machines, and hoisting dumbbells. Using non-traditional equipment can challenge your body, your core, and keep your workouts exciting.
Kyle utilizes things like the Bosu ball, chains, weighted ropes, and the Ultimate Sandbag to keep his workouts fresh and down-right tough.
I love the Ultimate Sandbag. You may have seen it on my Instagram or read Tina's blog about her Ultimate Sandbag workout.
Another great thing about the Ultimate Sandbag, is that its unique design allows people who may have difficulty gripping dumbbells or machines the ability to do exercises they otherwise would not be able to do.
The design of the Ultimate Sandbag, especially the handles, allow Rafael the ability to control the weight and expand his strength training possibilities.
Here's a few of the ways Rafi and Kyle utilize the Ultimate Sandbag and other "out of the box" training strategies:
Their only complaint about the sandbag....it's pink! Maybe next time we can get the boys a tougher looking sandbag.
Best of luck to Rafael as he travels to New Zealand to take on the world!
Question: what would you do if you knew you could not fail?
Love and never, ever give up,
Carissa & Kyle
