Personal Trainers and athletes alike are always searching for new and effective fitness tools. Ideally, trainers search for equipment that is versatile, functional, effective and durable. The Bulgarian Bag is capable of all of these things and more.
It is the Suples stuffing method that will guarantee you good quality and well-balanced bag. The Original Bulgarian Bag model comes in 6 sizes (X-Small, Small, Medium, Large, X-Large and XX-Large). From these sizes we have created the following ranges:
The bag's shape allows for both upper and lower body training while emphasizing grip strength. The three different types of handles allow athletes to execute a variety of exercises by using different grips. According to Bulgarian Bag Personal Fitness expert Steve Nave, "The Bulgarian Bag is a fitness tool of the next generation." Being a movement-based piece of equipment, Nave states, "It incorporates all primal movement patterns that mimic natural movements. What makes the bag unique is that it's one of only a few exercise tools that cover all planes of movement under load. It's a functional training tool that creates power and neurological integration." The Bulgarian Bag will have been around for 10 years in August 2015 and has already been validated by Olympic calibre athletes.

Size - Weight
"Don't underestimate the weight of the Bulgarian Bag. Until you work with the bag and follow the Suples System, you will not understand what the Bulgarian Bag is all about. Bulgarian Bags are not just a form of dumbbells or free weights. We recommend that you measure your progress by how well you have mastered the Suples signature movements." – Suples Master Ivan Ivanov
