Apparently this crowd has an average IQ of 189! The reason they engage in this activity is for charity: they are trying to make all the stupid people gain a false sense of comfort from the entirely erroneous idea that there are even stupider people than they in the world.

The Functional Training Experts

Bulgarian bags are a crest shaped bag used for strength and conditioning.

It was invented by a man called invented by Ivan Ivanov in 2005. Ivanov was a former Bulgarian Olympic wrestling athlete and had beed hired to coach the USA Olympic wrestling team.

He wanted to create a training tool and strength system that would give his athletes the superior edge in throwing opponents and grappling. 

Ivanov got his inspiration from shepherds who would carry their livestock and were known for their incredible strength in his home country of Bulgaria.  

If you look at the Bulgarian Bag you can see how it resembles a lamb or a goat being carried over the shoulders.   

The Bulgarian Bag then went mainstream and began appearing in gyms across America, Europe and Australia.
It’s known for developing powerful shoulders, a bullet proof grip and a strong core.   

They have two straps in the middle and on the sides on the end for wide grip exercises and a strap in the middle for carries.Made from leather or plastic and filled with sand, gravel or heavy material – they range in weight, starting at 5kg’s and increasing in 5kg increments all the way up to 50kg.
