In Part 1, we discussed Keeping It Simple with the Surge Sprawl
If you’re not familiar with the Surge® . . .
Most athletes, trainers, and fitness enthusiasts are continually in search of new, cutting-edge training methods to improve health, fitness, and performance. The Surge® is a specialized training device that utilizes water to create a “dynamic” form of resistance. This forces the user to challenge both traditional exercises as well as sport- and activity-specific movement patterns. As a result, the Surge® provides a very unique challenge to the joints and stabilizing structures to resist and control the unpredictable nature of the shifting water within.
Even well-conditioned muscles cannot realize their true potential without a thoroughly trained neural system. Muscles never act on their own; they must receive signals from the nerves that branch throughout the entire body. Stability training is a highly effective way to make these signals more efficient and effective.
The nerves will respond much like the muscles to training, adapting to the demands imposed on them and becoming better suited to physical movements. The result is a stronger, more fit you. Everyone can and should benefit from this type of training. By utilizing Hydro-Inertia Technology, the Surge® will help you and your clients take the first step on the journey to engaging the neuro-muscular system and becoming more fit and connected.
Try these three moves individually and in combination to get the blood pumping!
The 2nd move is The Surge Deadlift:
With your feet lined up under your hips, hands on the handles of the Surge, back flat, core active (belly pulled in tight), shoulders pulled back and down, neck in neutral, and the feet pressed into the ground, engage all legs muscles to stand to full hip extension. Hip hinge the back, allowing the Surge to follow down the thighs and shins returning back to the ground. This completes one rep. Try 15 to 20 reps for 3 sets.
