A friend of mine has made one of the inner-tube versions. It IS groovy.
Would be great for balance I think.

Very interesting. I'll pass it on to my Yahoo HeavyHands group. The people who use heavyhands are often interested in other interesting weights just as the late inventor Len Schwartz was.

Neat!
Figure out a way to easily add or decrease the weight and you've pretty much got a 'one-piece' strength workout apparatus.

That does look pretty advanced. I would think you would already need a pretty strong midsection and back to start using one of those. The risk of injury looks high. Good form is probably essential.

But interesting link!

A Bulgarian bag is a strength training tool invented in recent years. It's not really for beginners but is quite versatile and can be used in various ways to provide excellent conditioning and power for the upper body in particular.

This page has a .pdf how-to-make, also a video on how to make and use a Bulgarian bag:

Making your own might only cost a tenth of what it is to buy one, though of course the quality is far different. The results, however, are probably similar.
