Workout of the Week # 35

Workout of the Week

One tool can make or break a workout. This week we are using the sandbag again. What’s great about the sandbag is that it can go from 10 to 40 pounds with relative ease. Find a weight you are comfortable with (I used 30-40, depending on how hard I want to work) and attack these exercises head on.

  1. Burpee + Overhead Press
  2. Woodchop (right side)
  3. Woodchop (left side)
  4. Overhead Side Lunges
  5. Single Leg Deadlift (right leg)
  6. Single Leg Deadlift (left leg)
  7. Overhead Sit Ups
  8. Forward Lunges

This workout is 45 seconds work, 15 seconds rest, and repeat the circuit 3 times for 24 minutes. A short and heavy routine that will have your quads burning by the end.  If you don’t have a sandbag, you can use a kettlebell or other heavy weight.

What was your favorite workout this week?

      Your trainer doesn’t think it will be any different that what? A sandbag is an amazing tool so I’m not sure why he/she would say such a thing. Especially since they are only about $40-60.
