Ive been doing bodyweight excersises for 7 months now, with great results. Ive maneged to gain just over a stone and dont look like the runt i was before but ive decided to add some sandbag training to my work out.

Im starting with 25kg to begin with, i was just wondering if anyone knew of some excersises to start me off with, the last few weeks ive just been throwing it around abit and can really feel it doing me good

Try throwing the sandbag away from you, you can throw it diffrent ways which varies up the muscles used. Chest pass, throw up and away from between the knees, etc. Then sprint to it and throw it away again. Just keep repeating.

Another one is grab the sand bag and lift to the waist, then lift to the shoulder, then lift above head.  Drop and repeat.

there are probably lots of others, these are ones that I have done.

Out of curiosity, what was your bodyweight routine?

Try eating it, you'll put on 25kg no probs.

On a more serious note though I would say that that majority of weight lifting exercises can be done with the sand bag with a bit of imagination. 

One of the better ones you can try is lifting the bag from the floor to above your head - like the clean and jerk.
