Coarser grained sand works best and we would also suggest some form of liner for your sand such as our CERBERUS Sandbag Liner. 1 Liner Kit is included with this Sandbag but you can purchase additional liners to use for variable weights making this great product even more versatile. Our sandbags are heavy duty and are able to withstand drops but they are not designed to be slammed.

HOW TO FILL YOUR SANDBAG
Open out your sandbag & open out your liner inside your sandbag.
Now fill your liner/sandbag with the desired amount of sand, we suggest coarse sand please note that the maximum suggested weight is 130kg!
Using the cable ties provided seal the liner closed in the bag, so it is tight and compact, do not cut your cable ties, trim off any liner excess.
Now tighten the draw string on the inner collar make sure that is as tight as you can get it.
Now gather up the open end of the sandbag and get it as close/tight to the sandbag liner. You want the bag to be compact. Now using the external tie strap wrap it clock wise round the tightly gathered up material so it is as tight as you can make it.
Feed the end of the strap through the plastic fastener and pull the strap so it tightens the strap and locks the strap tightly in the plastic fastener.
Three easy ways to get the most out of your sandbag!
Use it as a conditioning tool/sport-specific – with a light to moderate weight bag at the end of your workout or as a separate conditioning session. Do long runs or sprints while doing a front carry with the sandbag (improved core strength, grip strength and forearm development, upper back size and strength and conditioning).
Ground to overhead reps for time – try sets of 30sec, 60sec or if you are doing conditioning for an event e.g. a lot of strongman events are 75 or 90sec just pick it up and get it over head with either a strict press or jerk or push press whichever way you do it will be a killer! (Power, core strength, grip strength and forearm development, posterior chain, shoulders, triceps pretty much your whole body).
Your options are endless here – push it, drag it, throw it, pull it.
Use it as a replacement for your “normal” barbell – use a moderate to heavy weight sandbag and use instead of the barbell – works great for front squats, overhead squats, cleans, overhead press, push press/jerk, floor press, bicep curls (light to moderate weight bag) the list goes on don’t be afraid to experiment just be aware not to try the same weight as you would have on a barbell.
