Sandbag Shouldering is an essential exercise in sandbag training. Not only does it work your body, is also serves as a safe and effective way to get the sandbag to your shoulder for other exercises like the Sandbag Shoulder Squat, Sandbag Shoulder to Shoulder Press, and Sandbag Get Up. Unfortunately, Sandbag Shouldering is performed incorrectly more often than not. Sandbag Shouldering is a full body movement that works strength and conditioning simultaneously, while also building hand and grip strength, as well as full body power. Use the tips above to ensure that you perform the most technical part of the exercise, the pull, correctly.
