Water Container Workout (with Videos)

Was at an apartment gym this evening. The gym has a couple of treadmills, some ellipticals, some stationary bikes, lat pulldown station, bicep/tricep station, bench press machine and leg press station. Of course… it had no free weights. I skipped all these stupid machines and went directly to…
Water containers! These blue bombs were 50 lbs each (when filled with 5 gal of water) and had the weirdest handles! The best part… since they had wobbling water inside, stabilization was a task (especially for core-work). Definitely harder than using a regular dumbbell. Anyways todays workout had clean & squat, swings, situps, running and some core work (see pic below) and since I wasn’t feeling up to doing a timed workout I did a circuit at medium intensity not for time.
Next time you see one of these containers try to do a couple of these workouts… you’ll know what I mean by stabilization. They’re super fun and the day you actually have to lift one of these suckers at work or at home… you’ll be the star!
There’s always stuff around the house that you can use to get a kick-ass workout done. No equipment is never an excuse!
