My good friend, Seth, came over again the other day for another workout, and of course I had to use the ol’ Slosh Tube again. Don’t fret if you have not made one yet. Just substitute a heavy weight. If you live in the cold part of the year, I bet you have a bag of salt for melting ice. Otherwise, just put a bunch of heavy junk in a beach bag. Use the bag instead of the Slosh Tube and you’re all set.
I did use 3 other pieces of equipment: an 8 lb Medicine Ball, a Pull-up bar, and a Physioball. If you don’t have the Medicine Ball, you can just do Sit-up Stand-up Tuck Jumps in lieu of the Medicine Ball Sit-up Stand-up Slams. If you don’t have a Physioball, you are going to have to get a little more creative with the replacements. Check out my Exercise page for ideas.
For Circuit #2, we switched positions (1 of us ran with the Slosh Tube, while the other did an exercise…then switch). If you are working out alone, just go through each exercise as a list and do the exercises for the estimated time it took to run the 150 yards with the Slosh Tube.CIRCUIT#1 10 Physioball Knee Tucks 10 yards of Alligator Walk 10 – each side – Physioball Knee Rotations 10 Frog Jumps CIRCUIT #2 #1 150 yard Slosh Tube carry (do as many Presses with it as you can) #2 Medicine Ball Sit-up Stand-up Slams switch #1 150 yard Slosh Tube carry (hold it in a front Squat position – in front of you under your chin) #2 Burpees switch #1 150 yard Slosh Tube carry (any kind – we liked a rear Squat position the best) #2 Air Squats CIRCUIT #3 20 Hindu Push-ups 5 Pull-ups 20 Mountain Climbers 5 Chin-ups 20 Squat Jumps 20 Spiderman Push-ups 5 Pull-ups 20 – each side – Lunge Twists (no weight) 20 Twist Push-ups 5 – each side – Twist Knees to Elbows (touch knee to opposite elbow) CIRCUIT #4 (bonus) Person #1 ran 150 yards Person #2 Physioball Balance switch
