Before there were barbells, people used to lift sandbags to build strength and endurance. Over the last three years sandbag training has been gaining popularity especially among the crossfit community. Sandbags are safer than barbells and can be used in more ways. Probably one of the best sandbag you can buy is the Ultimate Sandbag. It is very durable and has five comfortable rubber handles and a non-abrasive military grade exterior shell. It does not come with sand but you easily find sand and load it up to 80 pounds.
