Sunday 28th September.

Sandbag shouldering 95k bag for 26 reps in under 20 minutes.

Headstand push ups, BW x 14,8.

I weigh 95k.

I've hit 55 reps for the above sandbag weight a few years ago in under 20 minutes, but the bag i used was an English militairy bag 12" wide x 30" high and tight as a drum, much easier than my current bag(s) which are Dutch and around 36" high and around 24" wide, makes this exercise a lot harder IMO.

Wednesday 3rd October.

SQUAT. LBS

135x5, 220x5, 265x3, 308x2, 352x6x6.

Tough as fuck, i'm doing the Master's Russian squat routine though abbreviated even more, i perform squats once a week. This is the volume phase completed.
I'm 44 and have found squatting twice a week eats into my recovery too much with the sandbag lifting.

Friday 5th October.

SANDBAG.

Warmup on barbell clean + press, 135x10, 175x1, 200x1.

Sandbag clean + press, 210lb x 10 singles in 20 attempts.

Sandbag carry, 210 x 180 feet, 210 x 210 feet.

I set the task at 10 C+P's with the bag no matter how many attempts it took and in the end it was 20 attempts. Sometimes the clean was 2 movements then a press sometimes it was more, thats the beauty of training on this thing, every lift offers something different. I filmed a successful attempt but it would have been boring watching a vid of the full workout. Finished with the carries.

Yes mate a few years ago. Regarding training, i've fallen out of love with the barbell apart from squatting, i feel as solid as a rock after training on the sandbag BUT i have found its easy to get injured on it if you aren't careful, had two finger tendon injuries ( couldn't make a full fist for 3 months) and tweaked my back and shoulder AND knee tendon, so its not for pussies :mozilla_laughing:

Who are you mate, coming from a fellow Brit?

Tuesday 9th October.

SANDBAG.

Sandbag shouldering, 210lb bag x 36 reps in 26 minutes.

Handstand Push ups against a wall Hands raised on platforms 4" high,

BW ( 215) x 5,3,3,3,3,3.

If there is a better bang for buck exercise than shouldering a sandbag then i want to know it.
I've let my sandbag training slide over the years becoming obsessed with 1rm barbell exercises and missing the complete joy of cumbersome unwieldly odd object training ( real man training).
A full body workout with a simple bag of sand, strength and conditioning all in one in under half an hour, just fuckin love it!
My goals on this apparatus are a 250 clean + press, 330 shoulder and the above 210 for 50 shoulders in 20 minutes, extras are 100 foot walk with 300lbs.
I prefer to train the sandbag outdoors but the pissy English weather is preventing that, thus i keep the bag in my local gym and luckily nobody wants to touch it heh heh.

The HSPU's are a new accessory( did em a few years ago), i increased the ROM by 4" from last workout.
