Comment on this challenge
  • profile pic @Jen: The sandbags from hardware stores vary. They're stored outside, so they tend to be wet (making them weigh more) unless they're dry kiln sand. The sandbag I got from B&Q cost less than £2 and weighed 22.4Kg wet (so I assume it was a 20Kg bag), and the dry kiln one weighs 25Kg. So what I did was took the sand out, and put it into individual zip-lock freezer bags weighing 2Kg each. Put the freezer bags into a heavy-duty bin bag, and then into a hessian bag to give it durability. by Sylvattica on 11/23/2011 10:42:00 AM

  • profile pic ground to overhead - you can c&j or grind it up as long as the bag touches the floor between lifts and goes to full extension above the head by Coach Palfrey on 12/7/2010 5:15:00 PM
