Straight to the Bar Gymchat

The guys over at Straight to the Bar kindly invited me to one of their Gymchats yesterday. Check it out:

You can also take a look at the recent article I wrote for them about Sandbag Training Protocols here:

Todays Workout - Heatwave

It's hot here. Really bloody hot. Especially when you train in what is essentially a metal box during the hottest part of the day.

10 Heavy Sandbag Bear Hug Squats
10 Sandbag High Pulls

As many rounds as possible in 15 minutes.

Record your score.

Train hard!

Todays Workout - Atlas

This workout is courtesy of longtime Sandbag Fitness follower Josh (i.e. you can blame him). It's called Atlas, presumably because after you finish it you'll feel like you've just spent the past few rounds lifting the moon. It's a real shoulder-killer.

15 Shoulder-to-Shoulder Sandbag Presses
10 Sandbag High Pulls
5 Handstand Push Ups

10 rounds as fast as possible.

Men aim for a 40kg sandbag; women aim for 20kg.

Record your time.

Train hard!
