Looks like many of you have either achieved your dreams or are still working towards your dreams! You all inspire us everyday to keep reaching for ours. And one of those dreams of ours is to be as healthy and fit as we can be… bodyrock tv helps us reach those goals.
Now you all know a few basics of bodyrock tv workouts to get your started but what if want to increase the workouts even more? Or see Zuzana doing a few exercises with her sandbag and wonder how you can do the same?
Well you are in luck because today we are sharing how we made our own sandbags. Sandbags are a great way to add in some ‘weight’ and super easy to make yourself.
Michelle and I did bodyrock tv for about 7 months before we really added in extra ‘weight’ to increase our intensity in our workouts. So… yes you can grow muscle by using your own body weight, we did it and increased our strength!!! But we are at the point where we want to take our workouts to the next level and we feel with the extra weight of sandbags will help!
In regards to doing bodyrock tv workouts the only real equipment we use is the Gymboss Interval Timer (best thing ever) and a jump rope.
**we have used a chair and broom stick, Zuzana has talked about before in substitute for her reverse push-ups (does pretty well)
Lately Michelle and I have wanted to try new things for our workouts and using a weighted sandbag is perfect! Now you can buy your own sandbag but making your own is fine and cheap
Here is how we made ours:
We got this pink bag at the Donna Marathon for free , but any bag would do.
Cheap top dollar bags of rice (one 5lb bag and one 2lb bag is what we use). Could use anything, sand, beans, etc.
Sometimes we throw in our 3lb weights for extra bonus – making a 10lb bag!
Sandbag in action…thank you to our lovely model.
We are still new to using the sandbag, but we are looking forward to more workouts with it.
