Sandbag Bent Over Rows

Once you start using a sandbag the grip factor is largely involved.

We use a variety of shapes and sizes for sandbags, this makes the stimulus ever changing and much better.

The bent over row focuses on the pulling muscles – back, shoulders and biceps. However, this position also works the hamstrings and lower back as you stabilize the position

Notice the uneven gripping required to perform the movement? This is what you want. So when someone says it’s hard to use the sandbag, this is the exact reason.

We don’t want the movement to be easy, it should be mentally and physically challenging. This is why strongman and odd object lifts are so beneficial.

The athlete or lifter can either give up or fight and make it work.
