90% of anyone I've ever talked to will say this too. I haven't done enough decline to have a valid argument though.

We've all been 19 and putting up big numbers on the decline press. I remember the first time I hit 225 (decline of course) and thought I was the albino Ronnie Coleman.

It's a bag with weights. You can do all kind of presses/pulls with it. You can hug it and do sumo squats lol

Sandbag. Basically do anything you can with a bar, but it involves your core more then a bar ever will. Just had a great workout with it.

$170. And you can't with that weight. It would rip to shreds. This thing is built tough.

Nah dude. Way less injury prone then a bar will ever be. You use more momentum then actual strength. The bag flexes and stretches. Bar doesn't give any leighway

I sometimes see some of the trainers at my gym have their clients use sandbags... God awful form. I seriously wonder how some of these people get hired as PTs.

I've often asked myself the same thing when evaluating trainers.

That's what I mean, under a bar you are pretty restricted in your movement, whereas this has a lot more momentum / twisting if you let it. Someone with great form wont have issue but this just seems to me like a newbie weight lifters trip to chiropractor. Ever watch someone pick something up? 5% or less actually use the legs, most just bend over lol

Yeah I guess I he what you're saying. If u have a really weak core it could be a problem. But it's not much weight if you're warmed up, ya know?
