I don't want to use barbells but I want to get strong.
Ok, I posted a while back asking about the differences between bodyweight and barbells.
Im a huge fan of bodyweight but wanted to get some more mass and strength.
I was thinking on using sandbags to achieve this.
I realise that barbells have the benefit of being able to consistently add weight and the barbell makes everything efficient.
However, a barbell seems painfully boring and I wanted to do something at home and that's fun.
I have no desire to be able to deadlift or squat 400+lbs.
However, I know with a sandbag I can load it up to atleast 100kg and I can dead lift it, squat, shoulder press etc and get all the benefits of "functional strength"
