I wrote a recent email on rice bucket training and it generated a lot of good responses. Training with bucket of rice has its advantages and its disadvantages but I think it is very much worth doing — although perhaps not the reasons you might think. At any rate, here is a look at a recent rice bucket session. This footage has been slowed down slightly for dramatic effect, I only went for five minutes. There are a variety of movements that can be done in the rice bucket — grabbing … grinding … ripping … turning — but they are hard to quantify. I don’t really worry about how many of each I do, and I frequently repeat them, the goal here is simply to keep moving until the bell rings.
