DIY Slashpipe/Powertube

Introduction: DIY Slashpipe/Powertube

You need a pipe (7,5cm in diameter), two plugs, a part that connects to the end where one of the plugs does not fit on the pipe and last but not least PVC-glue.
I figured out that a 1m pipe is too short, 2m is good but not handy so I chose 1,5m.
Use the glue like it's describe on the instruction for the first plug. Fill the pipe half with water. Close the second end with the second plug and glue.
(You also can experiment with the amount of water you use but be careful if you don't want to glue the plugs the water might push it out)
Done. Slashpipe/Powertube for 20$ instead of 200$ ;-)

    It's a kind of barbell half filled with water so that it flows back and forth. And because of that you need to stabilize your body all the time. It's a good training for your inter-muscular strength, stabilization and strength-endurance.
