OBSTACLE COURSE RACE TRAINING
Wreck Bags have been used as the heavy carry element in over 15 different OCR series. The majority of these races require the participant to carry a 50# Wreck Bag up hill or carry out a number of Wreck Bag hoists. If you are purchasing to train for an OCR, we recommend a 50# bag or heavier.
Most Boxes and Affiliates purchase at least 10-12 Wreck Bags in order to efficiently program a WOD. Generally, this breaks down to an equal distribution of light weight (25#-35#), medium weight (40#-60#),
and heavier bags (70# and up).
Virtually every size Wreck Bag can been used to assist in rehabilitation purposes. 5#, 10# and 12# Wreck Bag Minis simulate carrying every day objects such as groceries or duffel bags. 50# and 80# Wreck Bags have been used to help get laborers back on the job by simulating the weight of plaster and cement bags.
First-responders can benefit from our heavier 100# and 140# bags to simulate moving or carrying another individual.
