for today i was thinking i would just carry it around and walk with it for some cardio. will this affect my lifting tomorrow? since im not doing anything like cleaning it or pressing it i wasnt thinking it would.
also i decided im going to buy a bar and plates and workout at home on sat. After that i was going to train with it. any short circuit i could do?
One sandbag circut I do from time to time is :
Shoulder it on your left side and lunge with it 60ft
Shoulder it on your right side and lunge 60ft back
Place it on your back and lunge it 60ft more
Place it on your front (think cross grip front squats) and lunge it back 60ft
If you get tired of lunges just try sprinting with it.
Be creative, sometimes I use it to do weighed b/w exercises because it is more comfortable then chains and weighted belts,and can be taken off faster then weighed vests.
Just typed in sandbag exercises and this poped up, have fun
