I recently finished a series of posts at Sandbag Fitness titled "The Exercise Technique Series". For anyone interested in trying a sandbag (as opposed to barbell or dumbbell) training routine you can find alternatives for traditional Squats, Deadlifts, OH Presses, Bench Presses and more here:
Sandbag Fitness: Workouts
If you have neither the time, money or the inclination to follow a traditional barbell routine then this might be a good choice for you. Better still, supplementing a traditional barbell training with sandbags and bodyweight exercises will give you great results.
