Surge: Dynamic-Fluid Resistance Training.

December 5, 2015 @ 1:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Surge: Dynamic-Fluid Resistance Training. | (8-hour Specialty Certification Workshop)

With the influx of training tools into the fitness industry the past decade or so, it’s no wonder it’s sometimes difficult to decide whether or not we need anything more to add to the confusion…until now! The first ever of its kind, all backed by science and proven training methods!

Surge. The cylinder shaped, water filled tool that introduces you to DFR (dynamic-fluid resistance) training! Based on a “live load” training principle. Like carrying around a squirming baby in your arms, handling a fire hose or defending someone off in basketball! Built for the demands of life and sport! It requires you to “react” to its continually changing COG (center of gravity).

As the Surge moves, the mass of the Surge invariably shifts making it far more unstable than a traditional barbell or dumbbell. These shifts cause disruptions in the normal movement path of an exercise and increase the demands placed on the muscles of the trunk and joint stabilizers to counteract postural disturbances. It has been hypothesized that utilizing such training devices may provide enhanced proprioceptive input, thereby improving joint position sense and kinesthetic awareness. It stands to reason that this augmented neural input may improve core stability and postural control by bolstering neuromuscular communication via augmented feed-forward and feed-back mechanisms (Bird & Stuart, 2012). By enhancing the stability of the core and the specific joints required to stabilize a movement, more efficient movement can be produced at the joints required to be mobile to execute a task as the agonists, antagonists, and stabilizer muscles function in a more organized and synergistic fashion. This is one you won’t want to miss!
