Sandbag and Bodyweight Lower Body Workout
August 1, 2014 Updated April 12, 2018
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to slave over traditional barbell lifts to build bigger, stronger legs. You can switch it up and use unconventional, slightly barbaric methods such as sandbag training to help you sculpt a set of bigger, leaner and more explosive legs. The sandbags constantly shifting load forces your legs to perform better in the entire movement plane, not just vertical or horizontal. This workout is perfect for building a functionally stronger base by targeting the stabilizer muscles that you don’t normally hit during conventional exercise routines.
Repeat each compound set three times then rest 45 seconds to 1 minute before moving on to the next pair of exercises. In each set, start with the heavy sandbag exercise. With little to no rest(less than 15 sec) proceed to the accompanying bodyweight/secondary exercise. To increase the difficulty of the primary movement, grip the bag and not the handles.
A1: Front Squat – 3 rounds x 10 reps
A2: Frog Leaps – 3 rounds x 10 reps
B1: Alternating Squat to Goodmorning – 3 rounds x 10 reps
B2 Single Leg Hip-thrust to Half Turkish Get Up – 3 rounds x 10 reps (each side)
C1: Single Leg RDL – 3 rounds x 10 reps (each side)
C2: Sandbag Pistol Squat – 3 rounds x 5 reps (each side)
D1: Clean to Squat – 3 rounds x 10 reps
D2: Get Ups to Burpee – 3 rounds x 10 reps
