Big Savings on Dynamo Sandbags!

Dynamo Athletics have just slashed the prices of their entire sandbag range. Designed specifically for more dynamic movements, skill and agility, the Dynamo sandbag is a great addition to your regular sandbag training. I specifically use mine for swinging, throwing and catching, grip-work and lighter load carries. It is also a perfect tool for group fitness training.

Available in 2 sizes, and various packages, the Dynamo Bag loads up to 25lbs when filled with sand but much more if you use iron shot.

Right now you can pick them up starting from $49 (a saving of over 30%).

The Top 25 Fitness Blogs 2014

I know that a lot of you guys who follow the blog on a regular basis appreciate the fact that I don't stand for:

a. General marketing BS and hype.
b. Half-assed attempts to influence others with big words and charts.
c. Anything that I don't believe is in the best interests of the general public.

I'm also often asked who else I recommend that people read up on when it comes to fitness. Hence this little competition that I've put together. This is squarely aimed at fitness-focused blogs, run by individuals, for the betterment of the readers. There is no prize, except for you guys who get to find some new killer fitness blogs to follow.

The competition is simple - I'd like your help in finding these people. Put your nomination in the Facebook comments field below, ideally also including a website address and tagging the Facebook individual or page in question.

The competition will close on Friday 8th August.
