DANGEROUSLY FIT STRONGMAN SANDBAG
WHAT IS A STRONGMAN SANDBAG?
Strongman sandbags are usually made from a durable canvas material and come in variety of sizes starting at 25kg and going all the way up to 150kg.
HISTORY OF STRONGMAN SANDBAG TRAINING
Ideally you want to be lifting your own bodyweight but if you’re just getting started aim for 50% of your bodyweight.
So, if you weigh 100kg a good starting weight for you would be around 50kg. The sand inside the bag should be compact and not loose and floppy like a normal sandbag can be, therefore, you will want to fill the bag to it’s capacity rather than half filling a bag.
BENEFITS OF STRONGMAN SANDBAG TRAINING
Carries are an extremely functional exercise that carries over to the real world. Whether it’s carrying shopping bags, a heavy backpack or even our children – we carry heavy objects all of the time in our everyday lives.
The design of the strongman sandbag allows the user to hold the bag in any number of ways, including the traditional sandbag bear hug hold which is excellent for developing arm gripping strength, headlock and shoulder carries for unliterally loading the body and the Zercher carry which is great for challenging the core and upper body.
