It can appear that we are very serious a lot of the time at Ultimate Sandbag Training. That’s partly true because we are very serious about providing the highest quality fitness and functional training information. However, this is fitness and it should be fun and we like to think Ultimate Sandbag Training can bring some of that fun spirit with your fitness program.
In that idea of having fun with training I wanted to do something with our Ultimate Sandbag Training and the upcoming movie “The Avengers” coming out end of this week. Yea, I am pretty excited! I didn’t grow up on comic books, but I can remember watching the early 80’s “Incredible Hulk” and like most young boys was brought up with the infatuation with superheroes.
It makes you wonder why we like superheroes so much as a culture! Blogger, Alex Wilgus, suggests the longevity and uniqueness of superheroes goes pretty far into our mindset.
“Action heroes deal with immediate, external properties of the world; superheroes deal with the interior elements of humanity. Superheroes are colorful incarnations of the human soul.”
Ben Shapiro compares superhero stories to our modern mythologies. “In a certain way, then, the superhero world is true to real morality: it has heroes and villains, treachery and valor. “ Something that is really skewed in our reality where it can be difficult to distinguish the hero from villain (anyone look at politics lately?).
It could simply be our desire to think we can be more than our current world sees us. So many people feel “stuck” in their lives and superhero stories open up a world so much bigger where we can see our “super-selves”! No matter how you break down the psychology, they are darn fun! Some even display common human faults that actually make them more relatable and seem more possible.

In some ways that is how I feel about our Ultimate Sandbag Training. Really the roots come from not some laboratory or concocted in some larger company board room. Ultimate Sandbag Training is first and foremost a solution to a very real problem that I have experienced. Severe injury, pain, frustration, and feeling as though my reality was being altered by all these obstacles.
Following our Ultimate Sandbag Training system really has brought out the best in not just my physical abilities, but my creativity and problem solving as well. Hopefully that it continually shown through our almost 400 Ultimate Sandbag Training Youtube videos, books, and most importantly education.
Once you feel good the “fun” and “play” components of fitness really start to come back as a major role. That is why this week we are going to share with Ultimate Sandbag Training workouts based upon many of the characters in “The Avengers” movie. That might sound a bit funny, but there is a way to bridge great training and having fun at the same time!
I wanted to model our first one after the first Avenger: Captain America. what does this Ultimate Sandbag Training workout have to do with Captain America? I thought about the character, someone who went from undersized and weak to strong and incredibly athletic. In light of the idea I wanted to demonstrate how our Ultimate Sandbag Training can hit those common weak spots that people often neglect in their fitness programs. Typically people think moving well and being strong to be mutually exclusive. The problem really comes in how they attempt to solve strength and fitness needs and the tools they choose to use!
With Ultimate Sandbag Training we can build strength in both the big and little muscles of the body. We can challenge cardio and strength training at the same time. We can move better and build a better body. It may be because Ultimate Sandbag Training is stronger than exercises, we believe in training movements and aren’t married to any one particular exercise. Instead with over 400 exercises in our Ultimate Sandbag Training system we can create so many unique movements and programs to address anyone’s specific needs and problems.
That is what today’s Ultimate Sandbag Training workout is all about and I hope you have fun with the inspiration and the concepts of the week. Remember, long-term success is going to be more than Ultimate Sandbag Training itself, it is going to be having fun and having a playful attitude towards your fitness routines. That is how exercise and Ultimate Sandbag Training becomes a positive part of making you the best you possible!
