This is a superb piece of equipment, used here to demonstrate the particularly challenging Decline GHR. Love it.
52 Blocks Knuckle Game
As the fitness arm of the not-for-profit Constellation group, the Bartendaz have been doing some great stuff over the years (here’s a sample). One of their training approaches involves the 52 Blocks combat system; loosely part of Jailhouse Rock.
If you’ve never seen 52 Blocks in action before, head over to 52 Blocks TV and swing by 52 Blocks Knuckle Game Good stuff.

This week we take a brief look at the Ultimate Sandbag.
I’ve been using the Ultimate Sandbag for a while now (here’s the original review), and it’s quickly taken a key place in my conditioning workouts. Great thing.
Two things I’ve noted over the past few weeks. First, it’s designed for a fair bit of abuse. I generally use it outdoors (apart from anything else, there’s more room) and the bag gets dragged, thrown and unceremoniously dumped on a regular basis. No problems at all.
Secondly, although I can change the weight of the bag (just by throwing in another filler bag or two), I generally don’t. It’s just not necessary for the type of workouts I do, and there are many other ways to make a sandbag exercise more/less challenging.
Overall, it’s a great thing. Highly recommended.
