Sand bag training is an incredibly versatile tool. They are unique in their usability, and some very different types of exercises can be performed in the formation of sand bag. The number one question people ask me is bags of “what are the best drills for sand formation. While this depends on various factors (i.e. goals, training level, etc.), there are some basic exercises which make very distinct sand bags.


Shoulder press squat side opposite

Until I have a better name for this drill, I will name after movement carried out. It can simply be best hybrid drills for use in the formation of sand bag. You are all important aspects of lifting, traction, squat and press. However, you do all the one side of the body. The sand of rest shoulder bag is very different with kettlebells or same dumbbell. By actually placing the burden on the shoulder, the body is really required to stabilize through all planes of movement. This also greatly challenges at the heart of a more functional (resistance movement and posture maintenance). Finally, the movement of pressing in this series can be done with the other all to implement. Your centre of gravity changes radically, and you are not in the most advantageous position to the press. In other words, a whole lot of fun!

Shoulder bag of sand get – up.

Major exercises such as get – ups are more drills forgotten with the reintroduction of Pavel Tsatsouline of the kettlebell. Using a kettlebell, dumbbell or same dumbbells, in this exercise, the challenge is to stabilize the shoulder joint, while you move. However, with the formation of sand bag, shoulder not primarily, but rather the intensity is placed by the torso. This means you can add more load of the trunk, and dramatically changes the dynamics of the movement. Not only the ability to be mobile and fluid while taking a bag of sand over 100 lb built a solid foundation, but also improves your flexibility force.

Snatch Halfpipe


Of course, the snatch exercise is not new. With most instruments, this drill is conducted with the weight of the body. This can also be performed with a bag of sand, but for a twist, that we are in fact more than one side version of bending. Since most injuries occur in query plans that we are, it is a very useful exercise to improve your hips and torso. Keeping the weight of the body by the bag, you explode and throw the bag up and over the heads of the other side. You will find that drilling should be done by the hips of conduct in the soil, does not step to lift the backpack. Snatching half-moon is incredible for all athletes, especially aggressive athletes.

Overhead costs of bags of sand slits

Some are not great fans of lifting General. While we could argue all day the validity of such an idea, we can probably agree that a certain degree of air force is necessary for all individuals-athletes and Psychophysics. A very simple and safe way to begin to build General shoulder stability is to perform the General slot. For some, this seems like a new elevator because it was commonly conducted using dumbbells and dumbbell in the past. However, sand bags add a new dimension. The non-conforming nature of sand bags, it is a greater challenge in trying to keep the perfectly balanced weight of overhead costs. The bag will slightly change on each repetition causing lifting stabilize not only shoulders, but the trunk and hips as well. You’ll be amazed by how many whole body shakes while performing this drill.

Sandbag dismantling

It is a very unique drill. I wanted a drill that could be done with the body with the explosive power of rotation. This is where this drill was born. Using a jump stretch band and attached to the handle of the bag of sand, you can create a drill in rotation with a feeling very “live”.

I hope, this opens our eyes to some surprisingly effective drills, you can create with one of the oldest training tools-bag of sand in the world!
