Re: My Bloody Sandbag

I've used mine twice so far, and haven't used anything to fill the slack. So yeah, it's a big lump or two in the bottom of a bag. You're right, that is pretty inconvenient as it leaves a lot of spare bag flapping around. I'll get around to stuffing an old blanket or something in there sooner or later.

Re: My Bloody Sandbag

Casey,

I actually ended up with a around a 90+lb bag, with one 50 or so lber and the other making up the rest. I left some space in the inner bags, and pushed out all of the air; I had read that leaving an additional 20% of moving space for the sand would be a good idea, and that's what I did.
I also used your idea in that I stuffed the large bag at the bottom, 2-3 sheets/blankets, and then the smaller bag, and then I cinched the sea bag. It actually came out exceptionally well.

Re: My Bloody Sandbag

Crap, I didn't think to leave slack in the inner bags. They're tight little 25 and 50 bricks. Makes sense to leave some room for slosh, as it would add some kineticism to the whole thing. Bummer.

On the bright side, one of the more endearing workouts I've come up with is alternating slosh pipe thrusters with bag shouldering, about 15 or 20 of each for three or more rounds. LOTS of motion in that one.

Re: My Bloody Sandbag

First flatten them out with the sand in them so they look like pancakes. Next squish all the air out. Tie them off to keep the air out and, keeping them loose, tape em up. Voila, no more lumpy sack.

Re: My Bloody Sandbag

As requested via PM, the attached is the list of sandbag workouts I've been cobbling together for a couple of weeks. All links in the document are WFS.

Giving credit where due:

Almost all of this stuff was brazenly pagiarized out of workout logs. My thanks to everyone who unintentionally contributed by logging their progress. I know you didn't do it for me to appropriate, but thanks. If you see your workout listed and object, by all means sound off and I'll take it out.

All that being said, here it is:

Re: My Bloody Sandbag

I'll respond in kind. I collected a bunch of sandbag workouts from the Catalyst Athletics site:
* http://www.cathletics.com/daily/index.php (w/f/s)

Let me know if anyone has trouble with the format of the attachment. I use primarily text-based formats.

In addition to the attachment, consider the following benchmark workouts with sandbags: Diane, Elizabeth, Fran, Grace, Jackie, Fight Gone Bad(!).

Also, you can sandbag on maximum effort days (e.g. 5x5 ME) on: Clean, Clean and Jerk, Press.

Good times!

Re: My Bloody Sandbag

Alright, I imported into a Word .doc. Hopefully this is better.

Again, attribution to Catalyst Athletics for the majority of these workouts.

Re: My Bloody Sandbag

How much weight does everyone use for the sandbag workouts? I was thinking and you could probably use the sandbags that you get at Menards, Lowes, Home Depot, etc. during the winter time to weight down your vehicle. I believe that those weight 70lbs. Does anyone use those?

Re: My Bloody Sandbag

Chris, I got three 50# bags from Ace. I left one intact and wrapped it in duct tape. I split the other two in half for four 25# weights. If you can handle 70# with a fair amount of difficulty you might able to just get one and tape it up.
