Sand Bags

I'm thinking about getting one of these sand bags for home workouts.

Questions:
Why are they based?
Why are they gay?
What weight should I start at? Some of the ones I was looking at came in 50/75/100 lb sizes. Then one guy on YouTube says that you should be doing your bodyweight at least, but then again I think he was targeting serious strongman bodybuilders with that.
I'm 180 lbs, 5'11, 30's, beginner lifter, not in awful shape, but not every good. I do some exercises with a 35 lb kettle bell, which feels like a good amount for swinging around for me.

    we used to have a sandbagcel who constantly made threads about how his gay sandbags were the best workouts ever and never posted body.
    I think he makes Black person dick threads on /misc/ nowadays

    >Why are they based?
    Because their unstable centre of gravity and awkward handles better simulate what it's like to lift a person.
    Best exercise to start overhead pressing lmao1wife for reps.

    >What weight should I start at?
    Depends on what you want to do with it. If you're planning on doing kettlebell-type swings or clean and presses then you'll want a different weight to someone who's planning on doing squats or fireman's carry sprints.

      >Depends on what you want to do with it.
      I was planning on doing a variety. That was part of the point, because they seem versatile. Clean and press but also just carrying it on my shoulder or whatever. What kind of difference would it make for the things you said? Like 50 for swings and 150 for squats? Or 100 for most things but 120 for carries? I dunno, you tell me.

      Sauce me on those sandbags bros. Friday is my jerking day

      Here you go, bro

        Dan John put a nice sandbag workout in one of his recent podcasts. It was basically "Put a kettlebell at one end of the yard, carry your sandbag to it, do 15 swings, then carry your sandbag to the other end of the yard, and do 10 push-ups, and then repeat that for half an hour". If you haven't got a KB, could just do squats or something, or do cleans with the bag, whatever.

        Stop wasting time researching every niche lifting instrument as a beginner. You are doing everything in your power to avoid the basics, e.g. barbells and dumbells. Sand bags are great, if you have a specific reason for using them, which you do not. Next week you're going to be asking about sledgehammers or sleds.

        A proper lifting set up is expensive and static and not practical for most people. Weight is weight, be it a bag of sand, an iron bar, or your own body. It's doing the work that matters.

    Odd implements like sandbags give you great transfer to practical strength in every day life. Anything that you'd see in a strongman gym would apply. They're also fun as frick to use
    >Why are they gay?
    You look gay if you're using small weight on things like this and if you're completely unathletic they'll more than likely injure you
    >What weight should I start at?
    Start with around half your bodyweight to make sure you don't get the aforementioned gay downsides. Your bodyweight as a sandbag is the eventual ideal because then it's like throwing around a grown man

    A strongman sandbag let me keep my gains while the gyms were closed for the china flu. I still use it on days when I don't have time to go to the gym. I have an extra box with sand so that I can change the weight. 9/10 would recommend.

    They're not necessarily users, just completely inferior to other equipment. Name a single exercise that you'd do with I sand bag, and I'm certain it could be done better with dumbbells/barbells.

        googled this and had a good laugh, then I realised there are people who unironically think this is better than using barbell and I laughed again, thanks anon

      Incorrect. I've been hitting the gym but I want something versatile for home so I can try to get more consistent. My gym used to be on the way home from work, so it was easy to just pull in. But then I moved. Now I'm trying to get some of that consistency back without spending hundreds on plates or DIYing one of those basement guillotines you guys are always posting.

    I have a medium Radien Sports sandbag and about 75kg of sand and I'm very happy with it for home workouts. The bag, a pullup bar and a set of rings is really all you need to hit every muscle.
