Sandbags are the best tool for developing the bone-crushing isometric strength that any grappler desires, using exercises such as holds, carries, and bear-hug squats. They’re also amazing for building back strength safely after injury. Learning how to use sandbags to elevate your jiu-jitsu game could be the best decision you ever made. If you’re serious about learning and applying the skills, this is the course for you.

How long is this course?

close icon

Over 2hrs of techniques, tips and exercises to turn you into an absolute machine on the mats.

Won’t my strength improve naturally by doing BJJ?
close icon

BJJ will allow you to build a baseline strength and fitness, but that’s where it’ll end. If you want to become more dominant, you need to invest in yourself and work on your strength off the mats. All the best BJJ competitors started as students who were hungry to grow at every opportunity. If your learning and growth stops when you leave your regular classes, you’re not becoming as good as you could be and that’s just a fact. Invest in your game, and you won’t believe the results.

Do I need lots of specialist equipment?

close icon

No, that’s one of the best things about sandbag training. This instructional includes all the information you need to begin. All you will need is a sandbag and some sand! If you don't have a sandbag already then it would be smart to watch the chapters "Types of Sandbags" and "Training info" to advise you on styles of bags, starting weight, and best sand to use.

I’ve injured by back, are these exercises safe?

close icon

Yes, and I have personal experience to prove it. 11 years ago I broke my back, and my road to recovery took many years and I tried many different rehabilitation methods. To my own surprise, it was only when I started taking sandbag training seriously that I saw a dramatic improvement. I credit sandbag training for allowing me to get back to almost 100% functionality.

I’m a beginner, is this course too advanced?

close icon

Absolutely not. The techniques I teach are just as useful to white belts as they are to high-level black belts. Strengthening your body functionally and safely will be a huge advantage at any stage of your journey, and will put you way ahead of the competition.

I don’t train BJJ, is this course still useful?

close icon

Definitely. Functional strength is a huge asset for a wide range of activities both in sport and in everyday life. I’ve had testimonials confirm that many different athletes, such as rugby players and mountain bikers, have had great results with this course. Strength is never, ever a disadvantage.

If I buy this course, does it last forever?

close icon

For sure. It’s yours to keep, and you can return to it any time you want to learn and develop. I designed the course to help you all the way through your BJJ journey.

Invest in yourself today and see the benefits forever

If you want to stand out from the rest, you need to make the choices that most average people won’t. Let today be the day you commit to becoming a seriously dominant competitor.
