If you're ever tempted to buy exercise equipment from say something like Body By Jake, Dear Lord stop. Wait ten minutes, take half of the money (or more) that you would spend and let me show you something better.
Sandbag strength and exercise training is a little known secret. This is old school so not many fitness "experts" are up-to-date on sandbags let alone the general public. Let's look at the concept of sandbags and strength training and break it down.
What is a sandbag? A sandbag is a canvas bag (I use my old army duffel bag) with sand and used for a variety of lifting exercises. Bag weight can vary from a few pounds to more than 100 to 200 pounds. Sandbag exercises require strength, endurance and creativity to figure out the best way to lift the sometimes lop-sided weight. Most sandbags are composed of many smaller bags of sand inside the large bag, which makes for easy weight adjustments with less mess. You can do loads and loads of exercises with a sandbag, and remember the exercises can be the same as regular dumbbell exercises but they are totally unique to sandbag strength training.
Who uses sandbag training? A lot of athletes and a lot of regular Joes like me & you. Those who are looking to mix things up a bit and push their body beyond what a typical dumbbell can do. You do not have a lot of time-no problem. Sandbag training hits it all.
Why should I know about sandbag strength training? You need to change your workout routine every 4-6 weeks, give or take a week. If you continue to do the same workout your body gets used to that and stops giving you results. Sandbag training helps with functional strength. Functional strength is loosely defined as an exercise that mimics a specific task. So if you want to become a better golfer you focus on exercises that mimic a golf swing. You want to become stronger and faster athlete you focus on sandbags. Sandbag strength training is your answer!
What type of exercises can I do with sandbag training? Any type of exercises you do normally with barbells / dumbbells or your own bodyweight. Sandbags can be used for almost every exercise imaginable, including carries, rows, squats, rotations, lunges, crunches and military presses. Also you can do combos using other movements such as Turkish get-ups, shouldering into squatting, burpees into snatches, clean, squat and press, and thrusters. But wait there's more! Combine walking with movements. This way you work on conditioning, static strength, strength / power, gosh everything simultaneously. Try walking with a sandbag and every ten steps stop and perform three to five reps of an exercise. Walk and then squat, walk, stop and do bent-over rows, walk and shouldering, walk and then clean and press. This is harder than you think, but oh so beneficial.
For functional strength, weight loss, cardio workout, heck for any type of fitness level you … Read More

Lots of us live our lives like penned pets. Built to move, too often we set ourselves inside a cage. We have bodies designed for racing across the savannas, but we live a life-style created for migrating from bed to breakfast table; to the car seat; to the office chair; to the…

Because everyone is constantly being told to get into some kind of keep-fit routine, they also try to find different ways of doing this to keep them interested and motivated. For example, one of the newer trends in gym fitness equipment is the shake plate which claims to tone up all the muscles in the body. In fitness equipment elliptical machines have also come to the fore since they do not strain the joints as much as the more traditional machines in use. But whatever workout equipment is preferred, as long as the end result is the same, it is down to personal choice for sure.
Of course, it is not just toning up the body which is necessary in any kind of routine. Strengthening all the body parts which count is obviously desirable too and this includes the joints and muscles, along with the heart and lungs too. Aerobic exercise used to be frowned upon by men since they always took it to a rather feminine pursuit, but these days even tough and rough football and rugby players have it as part of their regime. Indeed, some also include some rather difficult ballet exercises too and this soon weeds out the boys from the men!
Perhaps the first thing to advise anyone is to take things very slowly right at the beginning. By being over zealous right at the front, many will certainly fall at the wayside when the muscles start to complain. Pain is the most popular reason that people give up after a short time so keeping this to a minimum is probably the best way to ensure that the routine is followed for longer.
Once people begin to feel that they are becoming stronger, they usually opt for the treadmill or something similar to push them just that little bit further. Having one at home is even better since they can jump on it at any given time when they have a few minutes to spare every day. This is also good for the heart too and if the beats are raised for some minutes every day, the body will soon begin to feel the benefits.
Once the routine becomes too easy, these machines are built to have a small incline which makes the workout much more difficult for sure. But then, rewards come to those who persevere with their routines and this is where the 'junkies' to these routines are born!
For anyone who is absolutely serious about getting into a good routine, try searching out used machine sites on the internet. An inordinate amount of money can be saved if some care is taken and a lot of people like the idea of having all these machines available at home so that they can work out whenever the need arises.
Finally, before buying any machine, try going to the local keep-fit center and try out one or two pieces first to see how it feels. In this way, costly errors are not made and … Read More

Again, here’s Evonne Personal Training,Monetique – I just *had* to share this photo and how we ended up with this shot. I *wish* I had though about grabbing my little flip video recorder…. but alas, I did not. Anyway, there’s a nice paved trail for people wanting to work out or whatever around this lake up the road from us. So I wanted to take Evonne over and have her running on this trail. The trick was getting this particular shot.
I thought originally that I would set up the two alien bees on either side of the path and use the SB800 on the camera [or something along those lines] so that I had another flash in front…. basically throwing a ton of light at her from all sides to kinda mimic that shot I did of Parvati a while back that looked like a nike add. I don’t know why I thought this would work and still be able to capture the stuff around her….. but I did a test shot with my brother and decided that this was a bad idea.
I asked my friend and always human light stand Sean J. if he thought he could run along side Evonne with the large softbox on one of the bees. He said he thought he could so we tried it.
So here’s the Strobist info and comedic part:
My brother was running along toting the 18lb vagabond – Sean J. holding the lightstand with the Alien Bee 800 with a large softbox on it slightly in front of Evonne and pointed back at her at a little over 1/4 power and triggered with PWplusII. Me with the camera in hand, on continual focus, holding it as low to the ground as I could manage running along in front of them all. We would run until the guys were about to hit a pole that was alongside the path and then we would reset back down the path again.
On that note I think I shall invest in some type of cart for toting this stuff around like this. lol. As always, I am very grateful to my helpers on this shoot: Sean J. ( MiCTLaN ), Anna and my brother.
It was a little bit of happy luck to have caught the sun shining through the tree there right next to Evonne. I did not add that in in post. I have a couple shots that turned out with the flare from the sun like that but not positioned right there or anywhere where I liked the effect even.

You know that exercise is good for you … there is no real reason that you need to be remindeded. There is a chance, however, that you did not fully realize the potential that a simple exercise program has to make you not only look but feel great from the inside out. Have you tried to start an exercise program but have lost the will to carry on due to aching muscles, no free time or just pure laziness? If so, now is the time to get back on track and get yourself fit, healthy and full of energy.
The problem most people have with sticking to an exercise routine is that it starts out so easily and turns out to be difficult. You know the feeling, that elation and excitement that comes from knowing you are about to start something that could change your life. You buy the equipment, the books, the healthy foods and the vitamins, and for a day or two no one could make you stop doing situps if they tried. Oh, but then comes the muscle pain, the tiredness and the bittersweet linging for a candy bar! Most diet and exercise regimes die out in their first week of existence, which is a shame. So how can you stop yourself from succumbing to the never ending cycle of ups and downs with your exercising habits? The key is to not take too much on at one time.
Big programs like exercise need to be taken more seriously than they often are. Using your body in a physically demanding way is hard work! There is no way you can handle a heavy exercise session every day after getting little to no exercise for months or years beforehand, so do not expect to climb Everest before you can get up without being winded. Little steps will get you there, so clarify your goals and be prepared to stick with an achievement plan that is long term and sometimes slow to start.
You will not have to spend a fortune on exercise equipment to do it, either, so keep that in mind! The simplest methods are often the most successful, maybe because you realize deep down that it is all up to you to get results, and not the machine. Use techniques that you are familiar with, such as pushups, situps, jumping jacks or jumping rope just to get the ball rolling. By using these simple techniques, particularly movement oriented ones such as skipping rope or dancing can make the program an awful lot more enjoyable and easier to end than an hour or so of deep knee bends or leg lifts. Everyone has a different sort of personality and with that should come a unique exercise program.
Once you have decided on your own brand of exercises to get fit and feel healthy, you will be able to find your natural tolerance for the exercise and can adjust the workout length accordingly. You may find that fifteen … Read More
