Movement Bank: Sandbags and Core Strength

Building a strong core that resists rotation is helpful for daily life. It’s very rare we approach an object, make sure we’re centered to it and lift it with perfect form. Most of the time, we’re in-between 9 different activities and picking up the dog food/child/bicycle is an inconvenience at best.

To make sure you’re ready for whatever life throws at you, try the Ultimate Sandbag pull through.

1) Set up in a push-up position, with a straight line from shoulders to heels.
2) Push and dial the planted hand. Grab the sandbag with your other hand.
3) Keep your shoulders square to the floor. 
4) Keep your hips still.
5) Slowly drag the sandbag through, across your body, keeping hips and shoulder as still as possible.
