We have a selection of weighted bags in a variety of formats to allow you to choose the most appropriate one for you depending on your requirements. Weighted bags are a great way for you to build up your strength and have been designed for functional fitness to help build up your power and they make a great addition to any commercial gym, fitness class or home gym.
Using weighted bags as part of your functional training is one of the best ways to help maintain a healthy lifestyle. Functional training helps to improve your flexibility, core stability and overall muscle tone all by doing activities that are reminiscent of your everyday activities. Training with sand bags or weighted bags offers you a variation on your strength training, you may be able to easily lift heavy weights with a barbell but the sand bags incorporate your stabilising muscles too. Using weighted bags ensures that your body works to control the constantly shifting centre of mass, helping you to build stability, strength and grip. The weighted bags come in a variety of weights and shapes that allow you optimise your workout and should you need to drop the weight, you won’t risk damaging any equipment as you would with dumbbells. This is a great tool to give you a diverse workout, whether you’re in the gym, at home or on the road you can still achieve great results with the tough training tool favoured by the likes of the military. The weight that you choose to start with is dependent on your current ability level, using sand bags means that you can adjust how much sand is in it yourself where as the Bulgarian bags and Powerwave are available in predetermined weights.
