The Benefits of Sandbag Training by Matt Palfrey
As a coach, I’m always looking for ways to give my athletes the edge in training. I know that smart and effective training produces great results and this, in turn, improves performance.

The sandbag is one of the most under utilized training aids for strength, endurance, and power. In this article I’d like to discuss what makes it such an effective tool and how everyone can integrate sandbags into their training regime.
“This thing is awkward to lift”
For me, the greatest benefit of the sandbag is the fact that it is awkward to lift. The load is constantly shifting, or at least requires effort to stabilise, and this produces an effect far removed from conventional weight training. The sandbag is not ergonomically designed to make it easier to lift – it makes you work hard for each repetition. The result is that you build strength and conditioning that can be applied in the real world. Scientists would call this ‘ecological validity’.
