I found a vid on youtube on how to do it, very easy. I got two 50# bags of sand from Lowes and emptied them into a triple layered heavy duty trash bag(s). I tied each bag individually with 550 cord and duct taped over the cord. Finally, I tied the end of the seabag and duct taped it. It took about 24hrs for the air to escape(it was pretty puffy at first).

Side zip duffel bag filled with rubber mulch. Sand bags will inevitably break open and make a mess. Rubber mulch fills the bag better, adjusts much easier, and is much less messy.

This is my first foray into sandbag training(I decided to get into it to train for a firefighter survival school that I am attending). Interested in seeing how long my homemade bags hold up.

I found wood pellets from Home Depot work nicely and less messy than sand. I used some old duffel bags from a surplus store but good handles would be nice like the Rogue bags.

I may switch my big bag to one of these. The available rubber crumbles was one of the reasons I picked the Rogue bags, they have the rubber crumbles for sale on their web site.

Following Jong's link in the PJ section (LP's swimming Q) to MountainTactical's website leads to a pretty vast menu of exercises including many sandbag options:

http://mtntactical.com/category/exercises/

I'm finding my various wrecked joints limit the k-bell weights I can reasonably keep in a schedule, but adding a larger-volume object like a sandbag (and probably going the rubber or wood pellet route vs sand) should be helpful to push more recruitment with fewer focal stresses.

Welcome to 2009...

I used an old duffel bag because, free. I filled it with rubber mulch, two zip ties and 100 mph tape on the top. Then I took some tubular nylon, dental floss, and sewed some handles on it.

One of my favorite workouts is on a ¼ mile track. Left lateral throw, right lateral throw, pick it up, and then throw it. Repeat for ½ mile. Or left, right, pick it up put it on my shoulders and do 5 squats, then throw. Also, sandbag get ups. As many as possible in 10 min, that’s a ball dragger. I built some sinew when doing the left, right, throw for ½ mi (45min workout).

Rainy here, so I did a Kettle bell work out inside. I went outside to cool off and figured I wold get the mail. The mail box is 200 meters away. So as I walk past my car, where the sandbags are, I hear Sharky calling me a wrinkly old bitch. So I grab the 70lb bag and do a shoulder carry to and from the mail box, switching shoulders half way. Peer pressure is a bitch.

Welcome to 2019. Now the only twisting you do is to grab another red bull and a twinky.
