I ordered some of the sand bags from one of your links. Polypropylene and burlap bags. Should i use anything other than the bags provided or should i get another duffel or something to keep them from bursting? WWGD? What would Greg do? Do you attend seminars at Mike's gym to assist or do you not get involved at Burg's clinics? Also, What size and length is that rope that you use for the lashes? They're bad ass. Looked like 1.5 inch 40' manila. Thanks for your help.

I'd suggest making small sandbags with thick ziplocks closed with duct tape to throw into the large bag. That way you can change weights quickly by 3-5 lbs at a time or so and have no loose sand to contend with. I'm actually not sure on the rope - I think it's 1.5". I help coach at all of Burgener's seminars.
