Sandbag Training with Ultimate Sandbag creator Josh Henkin

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.

    Hi James, I am always looking forward to your vids/podcasts. Unfortunately on this one the sound is terrible. I can’t understand anything the interviewee is saying. Shame as I really wanted to find out more about these sandbags.

      Sorry about that, it is a bit tough to make out some of it. I’ll have to get Josh back on for another interview at some point.
