The Sandbag


What is the big dealabout a sandbag? I have been using sandbags for over thirty years. Ijust happen to have acquired some of the fancy bags (way overpriced)but you do not need them. Fill an inner tube with sand, that works justfine. Once gain it is not about the sandbag or the drill, it is whenyou use them, and how you use them. For us right now this is theperfect resistance. It allows the ability to incorporate maximum powertraining and ding up the gym floor. Frankly right now I would rather bein the weight room for a couple of weeks but there is a conflict withanother team so we need to adapt.
