It has been a few months since I did a WOD with the strongman sandbag. Today I finally did one with the hundred and fifteen pound bag and was thrilled with how it went.
It has been quite a while since I played with the strongman sandbag. This evening the weather was cooperative, and I’ve had a few drinks, so I took it out to do a WOD. Forgot how heavy that 115 pounds is!
This afternoon it became sunny and fairly mild, so I decided to take my strongman sandbag out on the patio and get a dirty work WOD in.
Somehow, I slept well last night. I woke up early and once the trash men left, and I put away the trash can, I headed into the garage to get my squats done. I also got a dirty work WOD in late in the afternoon.
Today was the day I would log my thousandth street parking WOD. I wanted to do a partner WOD with Molly to celebrate it, but she wanted to do a sled WOD outside. We made it work.
There was one of the dirty work WODs that has intrigued me, so I wanted to give it a try today. I used the sled instead of running, but what intrigued me was the sandbag bear hug carries. It was easier with the strong man sandbag than the brute force one.
My girlfriend bought me a rogue strongman sandbag for my birthday. It’s the bright green one, so I can see it better, plus she knows I like bright colors.
I did tomorrows Sandbag WOD a shot. I didn’t have a tone of time to do it since we had a lot of running around to do.
My replacement filler bag to go in my sandbag arrived. I certainly am looking forward to using that implement of pain again sooln!
The filler bag that holds the pea gravel in my sandbag broke during a WOD. I ate a lot of dust and sand and it made the WOD even more awkward. I guess I’ll see how Brute Force’s warranty service actually is.
There’s more than one way to make a WOD tougher. Today was one that I thought I could push myself with step ups which have always been a visual struggle for me.
I did this week’s Street Parking sandbag WOD and enjoyed some sunshine before aNd after doing ikt.
I did Street parking’s weekly power and a sandbag WOD today. Since I’m feeling better from having COVID-19 I felt that I needed to make my girlfriend laugh I wore my male romper.
My lifting was not so great today with a failure at my squats. On the other hand I was really surprised with how I did at the sandbag WOD I did.
I am getting back into the heavier sandbag WODs again. My old rep fitness sandbag kept having the fillers open and make a mess so I sort of got away from having the two filler bags in it. That’s when they seemed to open.
I did this weeks Street Parking sandbag WOD. It was pretty much an exercise in Murphy’s Law. I slipped and twisted my ankle on sweat doing lunges. Had trouble visually and a disappointing time. It was still a great workout.
I was thinking about passing on today’s WOD being tired and all but I gave the single shoulder squats a try. They felt awkward but not bad with the sandbag. It’s always so nice to find success out of my comfort zone.
Today’s WOD was one that I knew I could go heavy on with the sandbag and decided to go way out of my comfort zone. I wound up using a hundred pound sandbag for it.
I did my lifts today and turned my back squats into paused ones again to mix things up. It was light anyways. I also got tomorrow’s WOD done today.
I Realized today during my WOD that I do like sandbag burden runs. I think they’re a great use of the sandbag for working out.
This morning I got my normal lifting session in. Later on we made up a WOD with our sandbags and the sled instead of a Street Parking WOD. We wanted to play with the sled. It’s only the second time we’ve played with that new toy.
I did my twenty rep front squat 140 pounds today then did a sandbag WOD. Later on when Molly got home I did another sandbag WOD with her.
This day was a challenging one for working out. I did my heavy lifts this morning then later on I did a sandbag WOD outside in the hot sun.
Successes and fails were the story today in the home gym. You can’t win them all.
I finally got around to doing my first sandbag WOD since I switched my filler bags from sand to pea gravel. The bag had about the same weight as I’d been using but a slightly different feel to it. That did make the WOD go a bit slower.
I am trying out my sandbag with pea gravel in it instead of sand. It actually seems to be quieter. That surprised me.
Molly came up with the idea to do an EMOM last night I did it with with ninety pounds in my sandbag. It wasn’t that bad at all
Today I did two WODs with the 75 pound sandbag. That sandbag was a good investment. I really like using it a lot.
We started doing Street Parking WODs about a month or so ago and I noticed they had a sandbag WOD once a week and options in many of the daily WODs. I picked up a Brute Force sandbag and love this addition to our toy box.
