In this episode of the MTB Strength Coach Podcast I interview Josh Henkin, creator of the Ultimate Sandbag and THE expert when it comes to how to improve your strength and fitness using sandbag training. After seeing a demo by Josh I immediately recognized the impact they could have on a mountain biker’s training program and so I got some to use in my training facility. I wanted to get Josh on the podcast to tell us more about sandbag training and why it is so important to incorporate into your workouts.
In this podcast we cover:
- How Josh got into sandbag training.
- When he realized that sandbags offered something much more than just another way to do the same old exercises.
- Three unique benefits you’ll see from sandbag training.
- Some tips to someone just starting out with sandbag training.
- Why he started making his own brand of sandbags.
- Why can’t just use another piece of equipment and get the same results.
