Safety – Athletes participating in any activity with THE WATER SLOG should be instructed on proper technique and have adequate spotters. Start with less water and work your way up in weight as athletes get comfortable using THE WATER SLOG. For most movements, it is recommended that you only fill up to half full, as the movement of the water will create an unstable apparatus. Never use anything but water to fill your WATER SLOG.
Athletes will work their core and stabilizing muscles by fighting the water as it moves around inside THE WATER SLOG. By combining movements with THE WATER SLOG, athletes will work more areas more thoroughly than with dumbbells or barbells, and usually at a lesser weight. Overhead and multi-joint movements are now more complicated, as are traditional single joint movements. Work out with a partner. Be creative and you’ll discover news ways to use THE WATER SLOG in your daily workouts.
