Mini weights

A while back I made a how-to-video of how I made mini-weights. I plan on stretching the progression on my current program as long as possible before reaching a sticking point on the weights. These mini-weights come in very handy since I now can increase the load by 0.5kg per session if I want.
I made four 250 grams weights and four 500 grams. These along with my gyms 1.25 kg and 2.5kg plates gives me the variables in weight that I need.
I bought bicycle innertubes of two different size, cut off the valve, cut the tube in half, tied of one end, filled it with sand until I got my desired weight (used a small scale to weigh them), tied the other end, tied both ends togather and put some tape on.
