The darnedest thing about the slosh pipe is this: The water doesn’t stay still and behave itself. It sloshes. Back and forth. Uncontrollably. So, just picking up the pipe and holding it quickly becomes the Core Workout From Hell.
Did you catch that? It’s “The Core Workout From Hell.” Squat it, lunge with it, carry it — really, do anything with it except attempt a Turkish Get-Up (this warning from the lips of Coach Dos himself).
“Mighty Joe” Stankowski has an additional word of advice for those who live in states with cold winters: Use antifreeze instead of water for the contents of your pipe so they don’t freeze — ice pipes just don’t offer the same challenge. (If you do go the antifreeze route, says Joe, use the stuff made for RV and marine use. It’s much less toxic than the engine coolant variety.) Salt water can work, too, he points out.
On that note, get to making waves.
