Mutant Work Capacity Using Sandbags!

For developing MUTANT work capacity and insane trunk, back, hip and back strength sandbag training delivers on every level.

For grapplers and fighters, training with sandbags will get as close to "sport specific" as you can get - every movement is literally a FIGHT with the bag!

For guys looking to put on some muscle, shed some fat, and get stronger, sandbags will challenge you in ways you never thought possible.

So get yourself a moderately heavy sandbag (60-70% of your bodyweight will do) and set a timer for 15 minutes. This is a simple workout, but don't let that fool you! You are going to be doing just two movements, with the goal being to squeeze in as many rounds as possible in the 15 minutes.

1. Sandbag Clean and Press x 3-5
2. Sandbag Carry (zercher, bearhug, etc) x 100'

Although you wouldn't really need to do anything else, but if so inclined - throw in some sled dragging for the upper and lower body and then call it a day. Good luck!
