Sandbags are often used in both yoga and pilates to deepen stretches by placing the sandbag on your knees during seated poses, on your thigh in a kneeling pose, or to stretch your arms behind your back. Bags contain a velcro zippered system so that you can easily fill the sandbags with any dry item such as sand, beans, wheat, corn, or rice. You can then adjust to your desired weight. The outer liner can easily be removed and washed. Several poses are listed below for using the sandbags. Your sandbag weight seems to disappear as you work through your poses. Properly placed, the yoga sandbag can help increase your stretch.
Dramatically improves strength, power, balance and coordination.
Some of these lifts are well known: Squat and lift; Snatch and lift, Zercher Tukish Get-Up (Bag on a shoulder, squat low, lie back, sit up, return to standing position), Loading (rotational exercise involving lifting the bag up onto a platform adjacent to yourself). Bent over rows, Lunging etc. Many can be found on the internet if you search on SANDBAG TRAINING.
Unlike other weights, sandbags do change their shape as their weight shifts during lifting and that requires a great degree of coordination and balance.
Full body lifts are a very functional means of improving cardiovascular fitness. More blood flows through the body as legs, hips, core, arms, back, shoulders etc work with the lifting"
