Navy SEAL Sandbag Training Workouts

Navy SEALs spend most of their careers deployed to the deepest darkest and least desirable places on the planet. This means the conditions are not very hospitable and in most cases they don’t have access to a more traditional training facility.

A deployed Navy SEAL needs to create workouts and training programs that are functional and can be completed with the tools that are around.

Enter the sandbag. A universal tool of the military. You can build bases, bunkers, defense walls and more. You can also turn it into one of the nastiest training tools on the planet!

A Special Forces Operator will often put on their full kit and grab a sandbag and go through an intense, high intensity training program.

Here’s an example of a Navy SEAL style High Intensity Sandbag Workout

6 Minute Workout: As Many Rounds as Possible (AMRAP) weight: 40 / 20 Pounds

10 Sandbag Cleans

10 Sandbag Backsquats

10 Sandbag Get Ups

Rest 2 Minutes

6 Minute Workout: As Many Rounds as Possible (AMRAP) weight: 40 / 20 Pounds

5 Sandbag Push Presses

5 Sandbag Overhead Tosses

5 Sandbag Bench Press from Flat Ground

This 14 Minute Routine is quick and dirty. It will kick your butt. You can even throw in Sandbag runs or carries. This makes training with a sandbag one of the most intense and versatile forms available.
