What are the benefits of training with the bulgarian bag?
The Bulgarian Bag strengthens and increases the muscular endurance of your grip, wrists, arms, shoulders, back, legs, rotational muscles, core musculature, co-ordination, balance, and overall shoulder and joint mobility.
Sandbags, rice bales, sacks loaded with hemp, heavy stones and war clubs were all used for the development of strength athletes long before the invention of the iron barbell.
Bulgarian Bags are small to extra-large sized, manufactured with pride in Bulgaria, and built with the toughness and durability to handle everything you can throw at them. Most, if not all of the exercises that can be performed with kettlebells, dumbbells or barbells can be performed with the Bulgarian Bag. The Bulgarian Bag, also offers movements that cannot be duplicated with any other tool that allow an athlete to move in all three planes of motion during a single movement! Athletes of every sport can benefit from the unique training techniques and solutions realized by training with Bulgarian Bags.
The Bulgarian Bag is not a sandbag. Although the Bulgarian Bag happens to be filled with sand, that alone does not make is a “sandbag.” The contents of the bag are incidental to the function of the bag. Remember, it is the unique design of the Bulgarian Bag that makes it incredibly functional and versatile.
For example, athletes can use Bulgarian Bag training to develop speed and agility with a
“live” weight that can be struck, thrown or used in ways that solid iron weights simply can’t.
Bulgarian Bags can also provide an excellent way to “warm up” or “cool down,” making it an incredibly valuable and versatile tool for every athlete.
Bulgarian Bags are available in five different weights. The recommended weight really depends on your current strength and overall athletic ability, physical conditioning, and experience. Remember that there is a cumulative training effect with using the bag. Most exercises are designed for short rest periods, so don’t let the weight of the bag fool you.
A medium bag is plenty of weight for even a 180-200 lb conditioned male athlete!
