What are the benefits of training with a Strongman Sandbag?
"Sandbag lifting is less technical than traditional lifting. This is a great plus point for less experienced people who come into a gym/box. One of the major benefits of using a sandbag is posterior chain development – everyone knows that a strong posterior chain equals a strong person. It allows you to simultaneously integrate metabolic conditioning and strength training." - Rhoddy Davies, Read more on our blog HERE.
Gym Hacks - Scaling up your sandbag workouts.
If you’re looking to economise or perhaps don’t have the space for multiple sandbags as your strength increases, a great option to elicit progressive resistance is to start with the largest bag(s) you have designs on lifting, completely fill it with mulch, pick a metric to monitor for progress, and as your strength increases steadily remove some of the mulch, replacing it with heavier sand.
Continue in this fashion, adapting to the new stimulus and increasing the load, until eventually your bag is completely sand filled, and you’ve hit your goal of total sandbag mastery - check out more of our Gym Hacks on our YouTube Channel and blog.
- Strongman Sandbags should not be loaded over the prescribed weight. Use scales to ensure you have not overloaded the bags.
- Do not use pebbles, gravel or any other aggregate material.
- Bags are designed to endure being dropped and not to be slammed.
