Sandbag Shoulder Get Up

The Sandbag Get Up is another exercise that is traditionally done with either a kettlebell or a dumbbell. Using an unstable object like the sandbag makes for a much more challenging movement.


Training Technique

  • Take hold of the sandbag in either one hand or across one shoulder
  • Powerfully roll out onto your elbow on the opposite side
  • Keep a wide base with your legs when you do this
  • Push up onto your opposite hand
  • Get your legs under you - ideally in a lunge position
  • Stand up fully
  • Return to the ground and repeat
