    I think I’d prefer the sandbag version over the chains. Actually I like using resistance bands to make my pushups harder. Loaded pushups really do help to keep strength goals striding along.

      I agree, I’ve recently been using the sandbag again and you’re right, it is more comfortable and manageable. The band push ups are also great as well especially since they pack in a suitcase for travel. Bringing a sandbag through security is a pain!

      Yea I agree with ya there Mitchell. I recently got back into using the sandbag myself, it’s more comfortable for sure. Ditto on the bands as well. They are especially great for travel. I know there are some kool push up band products out there like the one Johnny Hinds has but using a figure 8 band works pretty well too.

      Who knows, I know a guy who got a kettle bell through security once. But you’re right, I’m not sure they would be happy with something like that in an overhead bin.
