This is going to be my first workout with sandbags, so how much does the sandbag need to weigh?
Chandler Alford 2009-07-21
I guess another question I have is what if I don't have sandbags available, what are the substitutes?

Brand new to this website, have been doing crossfit for a year and half. Interested in what the concept you are trying to achieve. Do I understand this correctly about your WOD. You do olympic lift or powerlift movements then you do the second portion which is a metcon?

Thanks for any advice or clarification

In afghanistan with military, lots of time to work out...

Clinton here's what I would say...

There are Olympic Weightlifters that Crossfit...

Or there are Crossfitters that Olympic Lift...

Athletes on here are mainly the former rather than the latter... as am I... The main focus here is mainly to improve the Classical Olympic movements (Snatch/Clean & Jerk) but in addition we strive to improve our overall physical abilities and GPP by using Crossfit WODs

Justin- Good answer!

Chandler- I would say start at 30ish% body weight unless greg notes otherwise. If you don't have a sandbag, a plate is a good substitute.
