Re: My Best Bench Press

I'd love to have half of that. Hopefully by the end of the year if I'm luck I'll be putting up 175*5. I'm at 150lbs*5 right now so here's to hoping.

Re: Back in the great outdoors!

What are you using for your sandbag? I'm having to get a new bag as I am a little rough with mine and I've managed to destroy two pieces of luggage already.

Re: Squats without a rack?

Re: Home made equipment

I love my sandbags. They are so different then a traditional barbell, and I can do almost anything that I could with one with my sandbags. You sometimes have to get creative with heavier weights...
