Home Depot or similar. You get a coupling then a screw plug and a cap on the other side.

Get ABS pipe if you can, stronger than PVC. Where they sell the pipe they should sell the end caps as well, one would think.

What is the benefit of training with a slosh pipe?

Helps build smaller stabilizer muscles in back and shoulder. Also a fun mix up tool.

Hate to thread hi-jack, but I have pretty much stopped all slosh pipe training. Found something way better. I made a couple of chain bars. Weights attached to chains hanging from the end of a bar...it is just freaking killer. 10 times harder than the slosh pipe. Pics coming soon in another thread.

You have my attention. A slosh pipe was on my summer to-do list...

I need an all-ears smiley here...

Yes explain further how this could possibly be as unstable or difficult as a weight shifting slosh pipe. I am kind of confused as to how your device is similar. I too eagerly await the pictures/description!!! :mozilla_laughing:

i have used a couple of kegs on chains attached to a 7ft bar, its way tough, but IMO not quite the same as a slosh pipe

two barrels 1/3 filled with water in each barrel, on about 1ft or so of a drop and the barrels wswing and the water inside swishes too

Why not do over-head BB or DB exercises? Wouldn't that accomplish the same thing without having to contruct a new piece of equipment? Just a thought.
