The Bulgarian Bag

Several T Nation coaches are fans of this tool. Coach Ivan Ivanov, a former Bulgarian Olympic athlete, created the Bulgarian Bag. The design was inspired by shepherds, who often carry their goats and sheep across their shoulders.

Originally made for Olympic wrestlers, it was quickly adopted by MMA and combat athletes. It’s great for metabolic conditioning, tons of dynamic, explosive drills, and grip work.

We like this 42-pound leather version, which comes prefilled and ready to rock your next workout.
