An example from the files of "You just can't figure some folks out". A fellow came in yesterday to buy two eight-foot long pieces of PVC (plastic) pipe. He said he is teaching a fitness class with something called slosh tubes. He needed the pipes to build his props for the class. Evidently, you fill an eight-foot piece of 4" pipe two-thirds full of water and then try to exercise while holding the tube. The water sloshing back and forth in is supposed to build your "core". "Core" is the latest in gym-speak, in case you wondered. Seems over the top to me. Oh, and he took the pipe home on his bicycle. Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

That's really funny - but kind of cool that you can get your workout gear at the hardware store...

What will they think of next?

My core is rotten.

Kurt said...

I've heard about the core and how we need to strengthen it. Not sure why.

We use these flexible poles in pilates all the time and it's fun-- a friend of mine cut some bamboo from her yard to make the poles-- free -- rather than buy them.

It's all about core. If I thought it would improve mine, I would happily carry around a big piece of PVC pipe filled with water, but I'm afraid my stomach muscles are on permanent leave of absence.

LOL @ Bella Rum!

Seems like these things would leak!
