Sandbag Clean + Press September 15, 2014ExercisesSSD Sand Bag and Push Press: This is very much like the Clean and Push Press 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. Gather yourself, then dip your hips, keeping your back tight. Explode up as you use your shoulder to push and guide the bag over your head. Bring the bag down to your shoulder under control absorbing the force by slightly bending your knees. Then control the bag back to the floor.
