Surge Move of the Month – Part 3 Unstable Resistance

In Part 2, we introduced Hydro-Inertia Technology with the Surge Deadlift. (link to Part 1)

HYDRO-INERTIA™ is the utilization of water to create an unstable resistance that increases core strength and stability during exercise. The majority of instability products currently on the market are primarily used as a base that you sit, stand, or lay down on.

By utilizing Hydro-Inertia™ technology in the Surge®, you take away the limitations that are found in products that are limited to postural instability. With the Surge® you are able to work instability throughout a full range of motion in routines that engage your entire body.

The efficiency of Hydro-Inertia™ resistance mimics real life situations far more than static weights do, such as dumbbells or kettle bells. This is not only important for athletes in their functional training programs. When you play with your children or grandchildren, you are not picking up static weights. When a wrestler or Mixed Martial Artist picks up another person, they are battling against unstable resistance.

Try these three moves individually and in combination to get the blood pumping!

The 3nd move is The Surge Clean:

With your feet lined up under your hips, hands on handles, back flat, core active, shoulders pulled back and down, and neck in neutral, take a big breath in setting the core tight. Then standing, pressing your feet into the ground, let the Storm 40 rise up the body accelerating speed through the middle, then rotate the elbows around until the Surge is at the shoulders. This completes one rep. Try 15 to 20 reps for 3 sets.

Stay tuned for the next move when we put it all together . . .
