    Read Mark Lauren, among others.
    No way!!!! There are hundreds of ways to make an exercise more difficult, but taking the ground away is dangerous!! In life, when do we do anything on unstable ground!?!?

    ROFL Umm, frequently? At least, we do if we live on farms and participate in wilderness sports.

    GTFO!!! The floors in forests and farms are still EARTH! THEY'RE STABLE even if they're a little mushy, maybe!!!

    You can do bicep curls on Bofu balls all you want but don't come crying to me when you break yourself!!!

    ROFLMAO! Hope you never want to stack hay or go whitewater rafting. Sounds like a boring life, but to each his own.

    Perhaps hang the sandbags on the ends of a stick/rod. Then you would have more of a bar experience, could break though if you need lots of weight. Are kettlebells not available in your area? They work nice for deadlifts though and then I follow up with some swings to really work my rear I only own one kettlebell (45 pounds, I'm a girl) so it takes very little space and was a small investment on it's own.

    Grab your feet and do an isometric deadlift.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    What she said, plus add lunges, one legged squats etc. As coach said you will not get the same deadlift effect without weight but you should still be able to get a solid leg workout.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
    PS
    Don't forget to play!

    You can make a sandbag out of a powerful dufflebag.
