Training with sandbags can be a fun and challenging way to advance and vary your training while trying something new. With a weighted sandbag, you can train both endurance and strength. Knowing how to train with a weighted sandbag can be difficult, but it's actually easier than you might think.

What is a weighted sandbag?

A sandbag is exactly what it sounds like. A bag with sand in it. It is used as a training tool during training and can also be used in competitions. Training with weighted sandbags can be a good complement or alternative to training with weights such as dumbbells, barbells and kettlebells.

How do I use sandbags for training?

The sandbags are bags made of the durable material nylon and work in such a way that you fill them with sand. This means that you can adjust the weight yourself by adding or removing sand from the bags. The bags are then closed with a high quality zipper and sealed with double velcro.

Train with a sandbag

A weighted sandbag has many different uses and can be used in several different training exercises. Sandbags can, for example, be used when you want to stress a certain movement pattern. When you want to train with a weighted sandbag, you can basically do the same exercises as you would with a kettlebell. The difference between sandbags and kettlebells is that sandbags are easier to run with, they are more comfortable and you can adjust the weight of the sandbag. Therefore, sandbag training with weight can often be preferred. A weighted sandbag can often be used to build strength in crossfit. By training with sandbags, you can adapt exercises and the function according to your needs and what you want to train. A weighted sandbag is an excellent training tool for functional training. With the help of sandbags, you can improve your strength, balance and flexibility. This is why weighted sandbag training has become so popular among different types of athletes.

Why should you train with a weighted sandbag?

When you train with sandbags, you get an unstable training weight that moves differently inside the sandbag after every movement you make. This means that the inter- and intramuscular coordination, i.e. the interaction between individual muscle fibers and entire muscle groups, can work. This in turn leads to the body being challenged more when training with sandbags than when using fixed weights such as barbells. Exercising with a weighted sandbag also challenges muscle groups and movement patterns used in everyday life. Often you may not carry dumbbells and barbells on a daily basis, but instead carry grocery bags, boxes or your children. This makes the sandbags more natural to train with. By training with sandbags in different weights, you can choose which sandbag with which weight you want to train with according to the exercise you want to do.
