Re: Looking for workout in the sand dunes

If you're looking to get bigger and stronger, a barbell lifting program emphasizing the back squat, bench press, overhead press and deadlift is what you want.

Sprinting up and down the sand dunes would be killer conditioning though, I'd imagine.

Re: Looking for workout in the sand dunes

bear crawls, handstand walking...
flip the tire, jump in the middle, jump out to the other side and flip it again. Repeat for 10mins.

I am pretty sure they have big bags where you are. Simply fill some of them with various amounts of sand. Voilą, weights to work with.

Other option would be to drill holes into the side of (two) canisters, stick in a long metal stick, seal the holes around the stick, fill the canisters with sand and close properly. Voilą, home-made barbells.

Come on, be inventive! Go and watch some McGyver series for inspiration.

Re: Looking for workout in the sand dunes

Heavy sandbag carries would be great.
sled (tire) pull through sand would be pretty miserable I'd assume.

what line of work are you in? any heavy crap you can pick up?
