    You can do a lot worse than a bag of builders sand - about 1.50/$2.50 for 25kg. Seal up any holes with duck tape and put it into a waterproof stuff sack - take a look here to see what I mean:

    Yes, it certainly will f you - and I'm still waiting for a call. You can of course have the 10 seconds between exercises, not that it makes much difference!

    My totals (35kg/77lb bag):

    Sandbag High Pulls 97
    Sandbag Push Jerks 120
    Sandbag Zercher Squats 102
    Chin Ups 56
