Spring 2007 - Community Newsletter
DiscussFitness.com Quarterly Newsletter
Welcome fellow members, to the inaugural issue of the Discuss Fitness Newsletter. I am in complete awe of the energy extended by the members, moderators, and administrators of DF to bring this newsletter to publication. Through this effort our members have another vehicle to take center stage in order to share their knowledge, skills, and hard work with others. We will be publishing this newsletter quarterly, and if the response from the membership is on the positive side we would like to increase the number of issues published each year.

Quick Adjustable Sandbag Construction
Here’s how to make your own adjustable, durable, and mess-free sandbag. The basic idea is that you will create “filler” bags that will be of varying weights, and these filler bags will then be placed in the larger, tougher outer bag. Click here to read the How To guide.
