Fitness is constantly evolving and changing, but the basic training principles remain the same. Changing the way I train and how I target my muscles is always a new and exciting challenge. Working my core is one of the things I like to focus on. A strong core leads to strength everywhere else in my training.
Stability exercises are some of my favorites. I’m always looking for ways to add in balance and resistance work simultaneously. I was excited when I found both with the Surge from Hedtrom Fitness. It combines water with weight training and it engages the core so much more in every day exercises.
So What is the Surge?
Dynamic-fluid resistance training at it’s best. This workout device uses unpredictable fluid water movement to challenge your joints, stabilizer muscles and movement patterns. When you rotate and twist the Surge, the water will flow and change directions inside the tube and challenge you to engage your core.
The Surge is great because you don’t have to learn any new workout moves, you can just replace the traditional weights you use with the Surge and add an element of stability. You can also add or subtract water to increase the weight of your workout. So you only need one or two sizes of the Surge to get in a complete workout.
I created a few fun workouts to do with the Surge and I know you will love them too! The first workout incorporates the following moves and is pictured below:
- Side Lunge with Row
- Overhead Triceps Extension
- Plank with Leg Lift
- Russian Twists
- Squat with Overhead Press
Perform each move for 15 reps. Repeat 3 times.
The fun thing about the Surge is that you can bring it as your only tool to any workout and do a whole range of different moves. The following workout I performed in my backyard, during a bit of a rain storm no less. I thought it would pair nicely with the water filled Surge to be working out in the rain 🙂
- Squat and overhead press
- Curtsey lunge and twist
- Reverse lunge and overhead press
- Bent over row
- Core twist/row
This short workout should take 10-15 minutes to complete. Perform each move for 45 seconds to 1 minute. Repeat the circuit 3 times.
