Exercise Technique Series - The Sandbag Windmill

The Sandbag Windmill is the ultimate exercise for core strength and mobility. It’s also an excellent movement for shoulder stability.


  • Lift your sandbag up to shoulder height and hold it in one hand 
  • Turn your feet at 45° to the working arm 
  • Press the sandbag overhead and keep the arm straight for the remainder of the exercise 
  • Push your hip out to the side and reach down towards the floor 
  • Look up towards the sandbag and allow the shoulder to rotate if necessary 
  • The working arm MUST stay fully extended 


  • See ‘Sandbag Bent Press’
