    Incorporating sled/sandbag/grip work into linear periodization


    Hey AM,
    So I've been doing Bill Starr's 5x5 for about 5 months now and I'm really wanting to start up some sled and sandbag work without over training.

    Monday:
    sqaut, bench, row
    Wednesday:
    light squat (or box squat), dead lifts, military/push presses
    Friday:
    heavy squat, heavy bench, heavy row

    I was thinking about adding either sled work on Wednesdays or some sandbag work on a day off or two.

    Even some sledgehammer/axe work as opposed to the sled or sandbag work.

    Any advice, any words, anything would be awesome and would finally give my mind a day of rest and comfort.

    Thank you.

    What kind of sandbag training do you do, or do you plan on doing? I'm in Iraq with limited availability to weights and I would like some ideas for sandbag training

    I've been doing some sled work in the vein of HIIT.

    I really wanna get some cardio and conditioning in once to twice a week.

    For example:

    Monday I lift,

    Tuesday I pull/drag,

    Wednesday I lift,

    Thursday I do some sandbag such as carries, cleans, clean and presses, pickups, etc.,

    Friday I lift.


    There's some great articles on sandbag/sled training on ChasingKaz.com
