To call my exercise session a ‘sandbag’ workout is really not very accurate since I don’t actually use a bag filled with sand.

Our old dry bags now contain some extra 5/16″ chain that we have on the boat.


This duffel bag, which is filled with line (rope) for our drogue, makes a great substitute for a sandbag as well. Unfortunately, the zipper is seized so I could not open it to show the line. We’ll need to fix this before we have to use our drogue!

We have in our possession a BlackPack which we received along with our new aeroSling Elite from Aerobis. When filled with water, the BlackPack acts as a weighted bag much like a sandbag. The next time we get a big downpour of rain, we will be filling it up and trying it out! I can’t wait!

Our BlackPack waiting to be filled.
