SandBell® Slam Progression

June 12th, 2015

Sandbell Slam ProgressionThe SandBell® Slam is one of our signature moves for good reason.

This highly effective movement works just about everything, from your fingertips to your toes. It challenges many different elements of overall fitness; from strength and power to endurance and grip strength.

It’s not only a great fitness exercise but it’s also extremely cathartic. The Slam is great for taking out frustration and releasing any pent up anger without fear of damage to you, your surroundings or your SandBell®.

Since not everyone is ready to “jump” right into Jumping Slams, we have put together a mini progression to help you prepare. We start with the Kneeling Slam, then move on to the Standing Slam and finish up with the Jumping Slam.

Think you can handle some Slams?


Try 10 reps of each variation with 30 seconds rest between sets, and do 3 rounds. You can thank us later (when you catch your breath).
