The Rogue Strongman Throw Bag is an implement we first designed for the “Bag Over Bar” event at the Arnold Strongman Classic, and it’s now available here to the public for the first time.
Made in the USA from durable 1000D and 500D Cordura, this is the same handled sandbag used by Hafthor Bjornsson (aka “The Mountain”) during the 2017 Rogue Record Breakers challenge, when he a threw a bag loaded to 100LB over a 15’ tall high-bar. By popular demand, the Strongman Throw Bags were brought back for the 2018 Arnold Fest, and they have quickly entered the training arsenals of many of the world’s elite strength athletes.
In bringing the design to the public, we’ve installed the same convenient funnel-filler technology utilized in our Strongman Sandbags, Cyclone Sandbags and standard Training Sand Bags. The zipper sits on the top of the bag just below the handle, and the funnel filler is contained within that zipper. This ensures steady containment of the fill material while allowing for easy, precise weight adjustments. Each Throw Bag ships unfilled, enabling the athlete to customize the weight and choose their own desired fill media (crumb rubber, sand, lead shot, etc.). Customers have the option of adding a 55LB supply of crumb rubber to their order via the dropdown menu.
Manufactured in Columbus, Ohio, from ultra-durable 500D and 1000D Cordura, the Strongman Throw Bag is a beast designed to be used by beasts. Each bag measures 12″ in diameter and 13″ in length, and features a 10″ long x 1-0.375″ diameter rubber handle, reinforced with three pieces of 1.5″ wide nylon webbing to support the weight of the bag. This nylon webbing then flows through the unique criss-cross pattern of MIL spec webbing on each end of the bag. The Rogue logo is included, in white, on both exterior faces. Please Note: As with all sandbags, Rogue Strongman Throw Bags should be inspected prior to each use to ensure optimal safety and performance.
Our funnel-filler technology is compatible with most standard types of fill material (sand, crumb rubber, lead shot, etc.) and allows each athlete to quickly and easily customize the Throw Bag to their own preferences and training level. The zipper sits on the top of the bag just below the handle, and the funnel filler is contained within that zipper. This ensures steady containment of the fill material while allowing for precision weight adjustments by the smallest of increments (max weight capacity, with sand = 75LB). As a filler option, customers can have a 55LB supply of crumb rubber included with their order at an additional cost.
The Rogue Strongman Throw Bags have been battle tested by the greatest strength athletes in the world during the Arnold Classic’s “Bag Over Bar” event. You can adapt the same basic principles from that challenge into your own regimen by throwing the bag (at variable weight increments) over a standard 9’ or 12’ rig crossmember. Some gym owners also create a makeshift adjustable high-bar up to 15′ by using some rope and a piece of PVC pipe and hanging it from the rafters.
