What is the most versatile piece of equipment you can own?  What is also the least expensive piece of gear you can buy...or make?  Also, what is something that you can take with you virtually anywhere and get a workout...especially a beach?

Winner, winner, chicken guessed is a Sandbag.

We have 2 types of sandbags here.  I bought 10 45lb Rogue bags and 4 MONSTER 120 lb Goruck bags.  Both are good, but the Goruck bags are better quality and made in America. 

I LOVE the sandbag.  You can do just about any exercise that you can do with a barbell with a simple sandbag.  Ours have a few handles on them, but I use the liner bags with no handles almost as much.  A simple $.50 sandbag bought at the hardware store can be a fantastic training tool.  You do not have to spend a bunch of money on shiny new equipment to get strong and fit.

Today we did this workout with a single 45 lb bag (Wade and I used a 60 lb bag because we ran out of 45's)

First we started with
