    A good indoor alternative is to use the small compressed wood pellets for for stoves. Cheap, good weight and if the bad splits and easy clean up.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    That's usually the simplest way if you have a homemade bag. Mine is double-bagged and custom made so that I can literally pour in a little more each day and then seal the whole thing back up.

    Of course the rice is going to be a bit more bulky than the sand, but probably not too much so.
    I think rice would work pretty well - go for it!

    At what weight do you begin?

    Is it just one lift your doing a day?

    Sounds very interesting, love some basics to go out and try...

    I started at 40kg but I did have quite a bit of sandbag lifting experience before that.

    I was completing 1 sandbag ground-to-overhead lift per session and adding approx 1 kg of sand per day.
