Thanks so much for the suggestions I wasn't able to find anything 'snake like' to fight with, but swimming season's right around the corner so maybe one of those noddles will find its way into my house :3
You know I just thought of another way to improvise with the snake idea: either get a garden hose from outside (they're longer than those noodles) and use that, or failing that, take large bed sheet or comforter and roll it up like you would for a towel fight and wrap yourself up that way, did it all the time as a kid playing around LOL!
Those are both good ideas. We don't have any hoses (still living in an apartment!) but I am hoping when we get a house that I can set up something where I can 'get leverage' against a rope or cable and do some poses that have resistance.
