Introduction

YHC has been wanting to bring the Slosh Tubes to the Houston PAX to bring a workout that many haven’t experienced. Our Slosh tubes are about 5 foot long and have about 25# of water in them.  The trick is that the tubes aren’t filled all the way up so that when they are held horizontal, the water “sloshes” side to side and causes a very unstable load.  The slosh tube works both the large muscles that we use on a daily basis, but also hits the fast twitch and core muscles from working to maintain equilibrium.

Condition

YHC has some mixed feelings about this Weinkie and the instruments of pain.  A variation of this Weinkie has been done by YHC a couple times and lead to a couple of days of sore muscles and questioning if standing up is worth it.  As QIC, YHC is responsible to ensure that every man receives a quality beatdown, from the FNG to the studs.  YHC definitely could have been challenged more during this Wienkie (more reps? More weight? More “slosh”?).

When YHC joined F3, one of the first things I heard after experiencing a beat down like I’ve never experienced before, someone told me “It doesn’t get easier, you get better.”  YHC doesn’t have the answer if that is what is going on.  One thing that YHC does know is that 5 pax showed up and continued their trajectory of movement.  The rest is a leader looking back at his directives and evaluating how effective they were.
