Friday Fun Day (FFD) Workout: The Slosh Pipe!

If you haven't had the opportunity to workout with a slosh pipe, you're missing out....big time! Not only is the slosh pipe a great piece of equipment that increases core strength but it creates more of a challenge for exercises such as squats, lunges and overhead presses to name a few.

Anyone can make their own slosh pipe by visiting any hardware store and purchasing some:
  • PVC pipe
  • PVC cement/glue
  • PVC cap
  • Thread tape
  • Masking tape
  • Water
Get all of this and we're in business folks! Be sure to check out this cool post on 'How to make an adjustable slosh pipe'.

If you're interested in seeing the slosh pipe in action, then check out my good friend and colleague, Sean Croxton, CMTA - founder & owner of Underground Wellness in this awesome video. Sean had an opportunity to visit with Tony Lewis - owner of Designer Fitness and Wellness Center in Gainesville, VA, and got a little taste of what slosh pipe work is all about!

Don't be fooled, the slosh pipe is a lot harder than it looks! However, it's fun and guaranteed to keep your workouts fresh and challenging.

Time to get sloshin'! (And no I'm not talking beers either!) HA!
