This 3 part sandbag workout is a real core strengthening and tightening workout. With all of the squats and deadlifts this really works the legs, but primarily it targets the abs and core muscles. There are several one leg exercises, great balancing exercises to really develop the inner abs and assisting core muscles. These will help build your functional strength,which helps all daily movements and protects you from injury.

This HIT sandbag workout is only 12 minutes long and the time goes by fast. Every exercise is done using a sandbag. You can substitute another weight if you like, and you will need an interval timer. More on gymboss, and links to online interval timers here.  Check out sandbags and my favorite home gym equipment here.

Sandbag Hold Core Heel Scrapers

 

Lie flat on ground holding sandbag overhead with legs lifted off of floor, knees bent and legs in close to body with your arms lying straight at your side. Bring down legs so that feet are just a few inches off floor and push legs out straight as if sliding heels on ground but actually keeping them up a few inches off the ground throughout the movement. Sandbag is held steady overhead throughout all movements, so that core and abs do most of the work.. When legs are outstretched, reverse movements and bring them back in close to body as in your starting position. This is one rep.

Sandbag Hold Oblique Core Heel Scrapers

 

Lie flat on ground holding sandbag overhead with legs lifted off of floor, knees bent and legs in close to body with your arms lying straight at your side. Bring down legs so that feet are just a few inches off floor and turning legs at an angle toward one side, push legs out straight as if sliding the side of heels on ground but actually keeping them up a few inches off the ground throughout the movement. Sandbag is held steady overhead throughout all movements, so that core and abs do most of the work. When legs are outstretched, reverse movements and bring them back in close to body as in your starting position. This is one rep. For the next rep turn legs to the opposite direction and bring out legs with the other side of the heels toward, but just above the ground and alternate sides for each rep.
