Sandbag Clean September 15, 2014ExercisesSSD Sand Bag Clean to Shoulder: this is very much like that clean motion we use with the barbell. After pushing the chest out to protect your back, squat down to address the bag. Grasp under the bag exploding the hips forward, straightening the legs then using your arms pull and guide the sand bag up to your shoulder. When putting the sandbag down it is important to control it on the way down. Then repeat the motion to the opposite shoulder. This then constitutes one rep.
