Brute Force Sandbags Review

July 5th, 2018|0 Comments

It’s hard for me to believe that I have had my Brute Force Sandbag for less than 2 years.

Introduction A good bench is one of the most essential parts of a garage gym setup.

June 5th, 2018|0 Comments

Introduction I’ve had adjustable dumbbells for the last 10 years. I started with the old school dumbbell rods that you could slide plates onto, and then fasten with nuts. I then moved on to a Powerblock 50-lb set for a few years. And then, I made the jump to the Bowflex 1090s.  A significant reason for using these dumbbells was so that [...]
