Sand Bags

Here's another inexpensive and useful piece of equipment for your home gym.

Sand bags are great for lots of exercises, are inexpensive and don’t take up much space. They are also very adjustable for the amount of weight in the bag. Each sand bag has smaller sand bags in it that are full of regular sand you get at Home Depot, Lowe’s or a garden center. The sand bag pictured above has four 10 pound bags inside for a total of 40 pounds. I have a larger sand bag too but I need to go buy more sand to get it ready to use. Sand bags are great for taking with you camping. I take one and use it for numerous exercises:

Chest press
Shoulder press
Bicep curls
Deadlifts (with heavier bags)
Tricep extensions
Calf raises
