    "Glass of water"- Method

    Background
    I got this idea when I was away for 14 days and couldn't lift in the gym and wanted to try something different. and it turned to be more effective than the normal bodyweight method.

    Equipment
    2 glasses of water

    Bodypart worked
    Whole body

    Target group of people
    People on vacation

    Main rule
    Do no let the water out of the glass

    Main goal
    Promoting maximum muscle contraction by doing controlled and slow reps by not breaking the main rule

    How to do this?
    1. Find 2 glasses
    2. Fill them with water
    3. Do your lifts without breaking the rule

    Starting and progressing
    Start with small and half-full cups, add more water and/or use larger glasses as you master the method

    lol, nice.
    doubt how much it can stimulate muscles, but definetly something that can be used for form checking/balance and all that.
    will give it a go next time i'm on holidays.

    lol wat. just thought of something, , spirit level style bar, lift while keeping it level just like keeping the water in the glass. NEW INFOMERCIAL PRODUCT.

    theres a martial arts excercise you can do where you squat and balance the glasses on your knees. For real encouaragement and possibly horrific scarring you can use hot hot water.

    This sounds interesting, I'll give it a try one of this days to see how it feels. Will use really hot water.

    But I must say I don't think it can really stimulate your muscles, but I won't know until I try it.

    It's still a quite creative thing.

    I did read an article somewhere about lifting a length of sealed pipe, with water inside it (although not full), and the neds sealed up.

    By varying the amount of water, you vary the weight, and the movement of the water in the pipe makes the lift more challenging to the stabilising muscles.

    Basially it makes you use your other muscle to balance the glass or tube so your not just working one muscle.

    Interesting but not very effective in my opinion. If weights are involved you could just injure yourself by the division of attention.
