Sandbag Exercises to get you started

I have a sandbag that I made out of an old salvation army duffel bag and six bags of sand from Home Depot. You can also buy them online from places like Ultimate Sandbag Training. Either way, if you decide to try some sandbag exercises, you might find that once you’ve got one, you wish there was more to do with it.

At least, that’s what happened to me. I could carry it around, slam it, load it up with a ton of weight and do bearhug walks, but didn’t venture much beyond those movements.

But of course, there are many other options. Here’s a video of a sandbag workout that has 20 different ideas for exercises you can try.

As always, I try to ignore claims about any particular workout, or system, or piece of equipment that claims to be the best. If you try sandbags and find that you enjoy using them more than kettlebells or dumbbells or anything else you’ve tried, then sure, maybe they’re the best for you.

Keep it fun and it’s always easy to keep coming back for more.

Enjoy. And if you have any ideas not covered in the video, please feel free to add them in the comments.
