Ep 42 - Josh Henkin Talks Context and Intent in Training and Programming (Part 1)

February 22, 2021

This week we have Josh Henkin, the founder and co-creator of Ultimate Sandbag Training joining the podcast.

Josh is a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist with over 20 years of experience in the fitness industry working with athletes from the NBA, NHL, and NFL, as well as high school athletes and weekend warriors. His innovative Dynamic Variable Resistance Training (DVRT) system provides a systematic approach to improving human performance. He has a great passion for teaching, which has allowed him present in more than 13 countries at some of the top fitness conferences in the world. He has also written hundreds of articles for various publications, such as Men’s Health, T-Nation and Bodybuilding.com on the topics of functional based training and performance enhancement. He is highly sought after for his innovative functional training concepts that combine current science and real-world application. His work has led him to consult with the U.S. Marines and top performance/fitness facilities.

Our conversation over the next two episodes discusses the importance of understanding context and intent when it comes to training and the use of specific tools, the 7 basic foundational patterns, how he looks at progressing exercises and movements, force production versus force absorption, and some key programming principles every coach and trainer should know.

If you haven’t checked out the DVRT system or how sandbag training can be used within training, I highly suggest you check it out.

Not let’s dive right in.
