Benefits of Sandbag Training
Posted on 25 November 2014
- Bigger & stronger forearms - Sandbags are a little unwieldy. The sand is always shifting around and there isn't really a proper place for you to grab a hold of. This makes them difficult to work with but also hellish on your forearms. You are constantly adjusting your grip to prevent the sandbag from sliding out of your hands and different parts of your forearms keep getting fired up. There is no better way to exercise your forearms than this dynamic exercise. An exercise like the sandbag swing will really prove tough for your forearms.
- Bigger Shoulders & traps - Sandbag tosses, whereby you lift it above your head and throw it as far away as you can, as quickly as you can are not only great cardiovascular conditioning exercises, but excellent shoulder wreckers. Once again, all the credit is given to the constantly shifting sand which means you havent got any stability. this forces you to constantly adjust your grasp and your positioning which fires up multiple muscle groups at once.
- Core - Constantly having to adjust and balance yourself makes for a strong core in the long run. The stability you gain from sandbag training is unmatched by regular traditional exercise.
- Flexible - Brute Force Sandbags come with multiple grips and handles which allow you to perform a gamut of different exercises.
