Long, tedious workouts are a thing of the past. Short, sweet, and efficient is in. And this 5 minute sandbag workout is crazy hard, but crazy good, crazy fun, and just plain crazy.
All you’ll need for this is a sandbag- we love Ultimate Sandbag (get 15% off with code save15!) for the versatility that they bring to workouts. So many moves! So many exercises! So many flows! It’s really fun to come up with sandbag workouts, and this 5 minute doozy can be done on its own or as a finisher. I like to add it to the end of a workout for that final burst of
It’s quite easy to do: you simply alternate between the two moves every 30 seconds. The kicker is that you can’t stop for 5 minutes. No rest. I told you it was a little bit just plain crazy.

LET’S GET TO WORK.
Move #1: Overhead High Knees
This one takes this classic move to new heights (and weights). Adding the extra poundage of the sandbag makes these high knees extra intense! Hold the sandbag but the outer handles up overhead as you move your feet as quickly as possible, bringing your knees up past your hip line.
Move #2: Push Up + Bent Over Row
One push up, one bent over row. Over and over for 30 seconds. In the push up, keep your hands on top of the sandbag and lower your chest, keeping your elbows tracking towards your ribcage rather than allowing them to flare out to the sides. When you come up, use the top handles to row the sandbag up, again keeping your elbows in line with your ribcage and squeezing your shoulder blades together at the top.
Set that timer for 5 minutes and get to work! Let us know how you do!
