If you train with me you have used a sandbag! The sandbag is an excellent functional training tool to build strength, improve balance and increase metabolic demand. It can be used for a variety of movements – rows, lunges, squats, presses, etc. Try out this sandbag rotational lunge today!
Hold a sandbag by the neutral grip handles. Perform a reverse lunge, and begin to rotate the sandbag to the same side as the stance leg just outside of the hip. Drive explosively upwards through the front heel — this will cause the sandbag to project out in front of the body. Quickly reverse lunge on the opposing side to receive the weight and repeat.
Have a great day!
