Indian Wrestler Sandbag Training

Chances are, you were probably introduced to sandbag training in >Dinosaur Training by Brooks Kubik but sandbag training goes back a lot farther than that.

Here’s a rare shot from a turn of the century training course of an Indian wrestler getting ready for a sandbag workout. Elsewhere in the course, he is pictured lifting, throwing and carrying the sandbag. As a combat athlete, lifting or carrying heavy, awkward and sometimes off-centered objects can be much more useful than simply “lifting weights.” I sure wouldn’t want to mess with this guy.
