Setup instructions

1) Start in the squat position. Hinge forward from the hips, bend your knees and push the tailbone back. Face the sandbag forward, grab the top handles so your right arm is in front and the left behind.

2) Lift the bag up of the floor.

Perform instructions

1) Drive from the hips and swing the bag through your legs up to shoulder height. The endpoint should be you standing with the sandbag in front of you.

2) Follow the movement pattern and return to the starting position.

3) Repeat.

Note: This is an all in one movement which requires momentum. That comes from driving the hips forward on the upswing.
