Wheelbarrow Wars

Two men are building a house together. One man is about 40 years old, the other is about 25. The younger one is constantly bragging about how much stronger he is than the other man. One day, the older man could not take it anymore. He came up to the younger man and said, “I bet you one hundred dollars that I can push something in a wheelbarrow 30 yards that you can’t push.”

The younger man took that challenge, thinking he could make an easy hundred dollars. They marked off the 30 yards and got their wheelbarrows ready. The older man got to choose the object. The only things around were wood, sand, water, logs, bricks, concrete, and a table. The older man chose his thing and easily pushed the wheelbarrow 30 yards. The younger one, however, could not push the wheelbarrow even one foot. What did the old man choose to put in the wheelbarrow?
