Home training will soon be become an integral component of my fitness and well-being, due to a new edition to the family [baby girl]. I am willing to wager a limb, that I am not the only human being who can benefit from a good home workout. Whether you are a parent, healthcare provider [doctor, nurse, firefighter, EMT, etc.], a starving college student, or someone on a tight monetary or time budget, these workouts will benefit you. In this video, I will be creating a Bulgarian Sandbag. These are sold on the market for varying prices, which start at about $50, for a 10 lbs sandbag. The total weight for the sandbag that I made at home is 42 lbs, which costs almost $100 on the internet.
***Note: Left over supplies: zip ties, a good amount of duct tape, and 28 lbs of sand. I’m estimating that my total cost for a 42 lbs homemade sandbag was around $40.
The materials needed and directions to create your own Bulgarian Sandbag are listed below. This is an excellent fitness tool that can offer you a challenging workout, cheap to build, and requires minimal space to store. Continue to follow me on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube; as I will post workouts to help you lean out and burn unwanted body fat.

-Locate the valve stem and cut it out
-Fold one side of the inner tube and apply a zip tie, creating a tight seal
-Apply tape to that side, creating a handle
-Insert the rubber mulch or sand to your desired weight
***Note: I filled it with the rubber mulch first, but opted for the sand because I wanted it to be heavier.
-Fold the other side of the inner tube and apply another zip tie, creating a tight seal
-Apply tape to that side, creating the other handle
***Note: Cover the zip tie with tape, to avoid the sharp edge of the cut zip tie
