    That's a great idea. I wish I thought about it myself. And I guess you can find all sorts of groups in different ages.

      My local Meetup.com group just has one or two groups, no sporty/outdoor groups unfortunately

      Looks like I'm not gonna gym it either. My income just won't support it, but once I get a job I'll be squatting and deadlifting like a mad man. Back to bodyweight. Now I just gotta make it fun :P

        What's wrong with squatting and deadlifting with a sandbag? You can make one for free, follow (albeit adapted) versions of starting strength, 5-3-1 or stronglifts and I'll even help you out with advice where I can.

        If it's a choice of sandbag training with a homemade bag or no lifting at all then you really should opt for the former.

          Coach, you may have helped me a great deal. When you first told me about the sandbags at the start of the thread I was skeptical. Now looking into it, all I need is a big duffle bag. A 25kg bag of sand runs for only €5 here - perfect for a while

          I've bought your book buddy, thanks!

            Enjoy it! It very possible to construct a good sandbag strength training program as an alternative to the barbell. I've worked up to a 100kg sandbag clean and press and continue to make progress.

            All the best with the training and please do drop me a line with any questions you might have.

            I'm also happy to check your technique via a video if you want to fire some over to me.

              Looking into things now, the book's workout routine looks good.

              Is it okay if I pester you on facebook with one or two questions sometime? I have some very silly questions


              Thanks Coach!

                I used to say that myself... but after a few months in a good box, with a quality coach, I completely changed my tune. Everything about my fitness level has improved since getting quality coaching and programming.

                  I'm not familiar with exercise being fun... that's why they're called WORK outs. Enjoyable in an endorphin-releasing way, yes. Fun? Not so much.

                    Not true, in my case anyway.

                    Capoeira, parkour, wing chun - I'd consider these workouts, they release endorphins, and I do enjoy them. In any case, I have it sorted

                    Thanks guys!
