Hydro-Inertia Training Benefits & Friday Five
Happy Friday, Y’all!
Hydro-Inertia Training is the name of the game today. If you’ve been doing any of The Surge Workouts (see below) I’ve been sharing, you’ve been doing Hydro-Inertia Training. I’ve got a simple workout for you today, but first, let’s chat a bit more about Hydro-Inertia Training.
Hydro-Inertia™ is: The utilization of water to create an unstable resistance that increases core strength and stability during exercise.
The efficiency of Hydro-Inertia™ resistance mimics real life situations far more than do static weights such as dumbbells or kettlebells. Think about picking up and carry your groceries. Or your kiddos or fur child. Or moving furniture or boxes. You aren’t picking up static weight – you are battling against unstable resistance. Remember when we chatted the importance of creating a proprioceptively rich environment during your workouts? This is EXACTLY what Hydro-Inertia Training and The Surge does. Which is why I love it so much!Hydro-Inertia™ Training Benefits & Friday Five #sweatpink @fitapproach @hedstrom_fitness… Click To Tweet

- SKATERS: With Surge in hands, roll shoulders back and down, tuck the pelvis to engage the core. Coming into an athletic stance, ball at chest, jump from right to left, ‘rainbowing’ the Surge back and forth as you move, landing in heel. Squeeze glutes and inner thighs. Once you get a rhythm down, try to pick up the pace.
- STANDING OBLIQUE TWISTS: With Surge in hand just below chest height, roll shoulders back and down, tuck the pelvis to engage the core. Twist from left to right, starting the movement from your core. Use obliques to move side to side.
- SUMO SQUAT: With Surge in hands, roll shoulders back and down, tuck the pelvis to engage the core. Bring legs wider than hip width apart and feet pointed out slightly, squeeze glues and lower down into a squat. Press knees out at the bottom and use inner thighs to stand, squeezing glutes again at the top.
- FULL CRUNCH (or sit-up): Feet flat on the ground, arms overhead with, Surge in hand. Bring arms overhead, scoop abdominals and reach up. Repeat.
- LUNGE & PRESS: With Surge in hands at chest height, roll shoulders back and down, tuck the pelvis to engage the core. Move one leg behind you into a reverse lunge. Drive through heel and squeeze glute to stand. At the top, press the Surge overhead. Return to start and repeat.

Tell me about your weekend plans! I took on 2 new clients this week – an online training and a nutrition client. After I gave up the fear of being overwhelmed – I got 2 newbies! I’ll be working on their plans, putting the finishing touches on the last 2 weeks of my Beta program and doing a little blog work. I’ve got a coffee date, set up at church on Sunday and my normal Sunday class. And somewhere in there, I’m planning on BIG food prep!
