"Many believe that the most effective way to recruit the core stabilizing muscles is to execute traditional exercise movements on unstable surfaces. However, physical activity is rarely performed with a stable load on an unstable surface; usually, the surface is stable, and the external resistance is not” (Kohler et al., 2010)

Slosh pipe exercises are great for gaining strength, developing balance and body control. Because the water moves through the pipe when it is moved, the athlete is forced to engage the core and other muscle stabilizers in order to maintain control.

Another great benefit to utilizing a slosh pipe is the fact that making one can be a relatively simple DIY low-cost project.
