blog: Training accessory: Sandbags

Sandbags are a useful addition for any strength-based training and a staple in strongman sports - here’s one way of making them:


The building is pretty straightforward: Fill the bags with the wood pellets to your liking, leave a little space when you close them with the zipties, so that they won’t burst immediately when placing them down, close the zipties themselves as tightly as possible. Cut off the unneeded plastic endings of the zipties and cover the zipties with a few layers of duct tape.

Regular heavy duty bags should hold a maximum of around 60 to 70kg when built this way. Enjoy.
