What is the purpose of Sandbag Training

Sandbag training is especially good for functional strength and conditioning.

Unlike other methods that require particular form and technique, sandbags are incredibly simple tools that can be used by almost anyone as long as you know how to pick up a weight properly (straight back, core tight, knees tracking over your toes).

The key to the effectiveness of sandbag training has to deal with the shifting of the sand itself. During typical sets with other implements like kettlebells, you can get in a “groove” while lifting the weight, making the set easier as you start to flow. The shifting nature of the weight within a sandbag makes that flow impossible; every lift is like the first rep of a set. This makes the workout more challenging by engaging your stabilizer muscles.

Equipment Needed for this Training PAC

If you’re looking for strength training, you just need to get a heavier sandbag and concentrate on lower rep sets. If you want to add in conditioning, get a lighter sandbag and add reps and intensity.
