#1. Get a bag of sand from Home Depot ($3).. or if your in a pinch dig up some dirt or sand from the creek.
My first sand bag I used construction debris (old crushed concrete and bricks and dirt)
#2. Use a trash bag or the bag that the sand comes in and make it the size you want it. Smaller is better as it does not break as easy.
#3. Get some duck tape and tape it up. Add an extra bag if you need.
#4. Put in ruck or use it as a stand alone sandbag for workouts.
#5. If it cracks or breaks – add another trash bag and more Duck Tape.
Question: What if I live in the city and don’t have access to dirt – what can I do?
Get some old household items like a broken TV or computer – crush the parts down and put them in a plastic bag and use that.
Find gravel or street rubble and make a bag with that. Get creative.
You need to adapt, overcome and improvise.
