A Mission To Fitness – 2 Drills That Combine Both Intense Cardio And Serious Strength!

A Mission to Fitness – 2 Drills That Combine Both Intense Cardio and Serious Strength!

Imagine having the body of your dreams. What would you do? What you show it off to friends more often? Would you even show it off to total strangers more often? These are legitimate questions and I’m willing to bet you have asked them to yourself before. Remember that anything worth achieving takes some time and sacrifice. However, it doesn’t require as much time and sacrifice as you would think. The key is to maintain consistency forever. This doesn’t mean your results will take forever to obtain, but you have to have that mindset in order live the lifestyle to make your goals possible. Start by incorporating these 2 intense drills into your personal program.

1. Sandbag Hill Runs: For the following drill you will need to have 2 obvious things to make it work. You will need a hefty sandbag and a good hill to run up. To begin the drill simply start at the base of the hill. To make the hill runs challenging you will have to dictate your intensity based on the grade and distance of the hill, as well as, the weight of the sandbag. If you have a steady grade or incline of 10 to 20 degrees and at least a 50 lb sandbag then you will have yourself quite a workout. Just try to fairly gauge your intensity and make sure you stay strict on your rest time. This drill is great for building your core strength and cardiovascular fitness.

2. Dragging The Sandbag Uphill: For this drill you can certainly use the same hill. I would recommend a grassy hill for this particular exercise to preserve the quality of your sandbag. For this drill once again start at the base of the hill. This is certainly a drill that is great for developing quality leg strength and total conditioning. Grab one end of the bag and back pedal up the hill while dragging the bag in front of you. If the bag isn’t long enough then you can always pay a visit to the local hardware store for some rope to tie around the bag to give yourself a little something extra to hold onto. Your strength and conditioning program will soar to all new heights with these two drills!
