Exercise Technique Series - The Sandbag Get Up

The Sandbag Get Up is another exercise that is traditionally done with either a kettlebell or a dumbbell. Using an unstable object like the sandbag makes for a much more challenging movement.


  • Take hold of the sandbag in either one hand or across one shoulder 
  • Powerfully roll out onto your elbow on the opposite side 
  • Keep a wide base with your legs when you do this 
  • Push up onto your opposite hand 
  • Get your legs under you - ideally in a lunge position 
  • Stand up fully 
  • Return to the ground and repeat 


  • Perform the movement with the sandbag across the shoulder or in your extended arm
