Sand Bag Training Video

I have a new video out that should be of benefit to you all.   Brian Jones is my strength coach and we have been using sand bags as part of our training for years.  I like it because it does not take a lot of room and you can get a total body workout in a very short time.  It would serve as a nice supplement to whatever program you currently do.


Fundamentals of Sand Bag Training

With Brian Jones, MS, CSCS

Few tools in the strength and conditioning world can match the simplicity and effectiveness of heavy sand bags. This simple item can be used to improve total body strength, power, and endurance. The awkwardness and instability forces the core muscles to work hard and place the lifter in positions encountered in real life or athletic competition. Sand bags are ideal for all athletes in combat/tackling sports or for anyone who wants to avoid the high-tech gloss of the modern gym and get in shape the old fashioned way.

This video not only details the fundamental exercises for sand bag training, but it also provides details for designing a program for your own specific needs.

Brian Jones has a Masters degree in exercise physiology and is currently working on his PhD at the University of Kentucky. He is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and USA Weightlifting Club Coach.

Brian has trained athletes of all levels and from a wide variety of sports. He has been involved in martial arts for over 20 years and is currently a competitive Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu player and NHB fighter.

hey Aaron, can you post this on the s&c forum as well? I'm sure the folks there would be very interested.

4 Ranges,
Thanks. I just posted it over just now.

I am teaching a seminar in TN this weekend and will be away from the internet. I would appreciate it if people would keep it pushed to the top over there for me.


I'll keep it bumped up on that side. I'll be ordering this in a couple of weeks.

Thanks 4 Ranges.
