Last Friday, I introduced you to the concept of dynamic-fluid resistance training. There's another name for it: hydro-inertia training. Long story short, this method of resistance training uses equipment that is filled with water. Specifically, the Surge and Kamagon Ball from Hedstrom Fitness. These two products are filled with water, which is constantly in motion when the products are in use. This allows the user to "train integrated, multi-joint, multi-planar movements to not only enhance appearance, but to also increase whole body coordination and neuromuscular compliance."
Sounds like a good workout, right?
Hedstrom Fitness is really on top of it with this one.
I put together a total-body dynamic-fluid resistance workout for you last week, and I've got another one this week. I'm really digging the Surge and Kamagon ball. In fact, I've taken this equipment to my gym and have been using both pieces all over the place. The feedback: "wow, this equipment is awesome." Because it is.
HERE. Or, feel free to replace the following with a medicine ball, weighted bar or sandbag. It will remove the hydro-inertia element, but you will still feel the burn.
It goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway: Please honor your body and work according to your fitness level. Before you try anything new, you should consult with a professional if you aren't sure such an exercise or program is right for you.
Now, let's get started.
Here are the exercises:
Classic move. Even harder with a medicine ball...especially one that doesn't like to sit still.
Side Lunge to Biceps Curl
Another classic move. Alternate sides on each lunge.
Harder than it looks! That water moving around...it makes it harder to control the Kamagon Ball. Be sure to get each arm. You can also change this one to an overhead triceps press, holding on to both handles at the same time.
This core exercise is a total challenge! You can swap out the Surge for a Kamagon Ball if that's easier to hold. Keep your back straight and feet up, or place the feet on the floor to decrease the intensity. Rotate side to side, feel the burn.
Weighted Side Plank
Hold that Kamagon Ball right above your shoulder! This can also be done with a straight base arm to increase the intensity. Be sure to get both sides!

Question: What's your favorite piece of fitness equipment? Because, you know, they're basically toys for adults. So what do you like to play with?
