Recycled Food Containers As Water Weights

Wash the Lay's Stax brand plastic chip cans (like Pringles) when finished with the chips. Also save your empty milk gallon and/or half gallon jugs. Fill them with water. Use in your pools as water weights. If the lids were to come off in the pool, no problem.

People pay how much for exercise weights?
You can create usable weights from any plastic soda.or milk bottles by adding either water or gravel.sand,or whatever else you can put into a container.
Me. I actually have a 2 litre soda bottle full of wastebasket paper.All sorts of paper including the label from that soda bottle,Candy bar name it _It is probably in that bottle.
How ? I just kept putting paper in the bottle and compressiing it with a wooden rod I made from a broken coat hanger.
The bottle now weighs cloose to 2 1/2 lbs .
How do I use this weighted soda bottle?
I swing it around with each arm.
I use it to strenghten my grip by sqeeshing it with my hand or hands
I use it as a punching bag to relieve stress


I use it to strengthen my legs and arms by compressing the bottle curling it
I help my cordination by flipping and catching the bottle while sitting in a chain.
I use the bottle to touch my toes in an exercise .
I use the bottle to massage aching parts of my body while fully clothed.
A note
I am very weak from a variety of illnesses.These uses of that soda bottle seemed to help abit delaying whatever is next for me .
I take alot of pride inventing these reuses of that bottle for my exercise program.
It proves to a point that while my body fails me My Mind is still working.
Please REUSE Everything And Anything
Mr Thrifty
