Materials needed:

  • XL heavy-duty garbage bags (2)

  • Old backpack

For less than $20 and under 10 minutes of work, you can make a highly functional piece of equipment to add to your home gym.

Is there a reason to use pea gravel instead of actual sand? Couldn’t sand make heavier and/or more comfortable objects?

How do we want store sandbags? I notice the bottom to be damp when stored on the garage floor

I see Home Depot has a 0.5 cu ft bagged pea gravel--Don't know the size or weight, but I am hoping the bag will fit right into my old backpack I am thinking of using: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Vigoro-0-5-cu-ft-Bagged-Pea-Gravel-Pebbles-54255/202523000
