That is a great question and thank you for asking. We currently have a book (101 Sandbag Exercises) and DVD that can be purchased (here in PTN I believe) which introduces how to use the bags, how to incorporate them into your program and execute exercises correctly. We will soon be offering a Performance Sandbag Training (PST) workbook and educational course that will offer a certification test upon completion here on PT on The Net this month as well, so stayed tuned. If you have not used them they are a great, versatile, and fun tool to add to you program but it does take some acclimation to introduce. However, it can be a fantastic tool to add to you program that is very multi-dimensional and can offer exercises that crossover the lines of usage without needing 4,5, 6 or more different implements that this one tool can offer. Thanks for the question and let me know if there is anything else I can help with. Be well and best wishes! Joel Raether MAEd, CSCS*D, RSCC*D

do you need a certificate or qualification to introduce sandbags to your classes or one to one?
