Exercise Technique Series - The Sandbag Floor Press

The Sandbag Floor Press is our version of the bench press. It develops upper body strength and power, particularly in the chest and arms.


  • Lie down on the ground with the sandbag in both hands, lying across your chest 
  • Push the sandbag straight upwards by extending your arms 
  • Arms should go to full extension 
  • Return the sandbag to the starting position and repeat 


  • Perform the exercise with a Hip Bridge (as pictured)

  1. Some healthy fat: olive oil, avocados, nuts, seeds, butter, cream, and the occasional bacon strip. Throw in some veggies and fruit for vitamins, and you're off to a great start. Until you're eating 3 square meals a day with those elements in it, then, and only then, should you consider adding a supplement.
