The Surge Dynamic-Fluid Resistance Training

Living resistance that builds an athletic core which can take anything life and sport can dish out through intense and dynamic training.

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 fluid 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, this training apparatus provides a very unique challenge to the joints and stabilizing structures to resist and control the unpredictable nature of the shifting water within this device.


What is Dynamic-Fluid Resistance Training?

Dynamic-fluid resistance training is the use of specialized, water-filled, device that is used to create an “active” or unstable form of resistance that must be controlled by the user. As the concept of functional training has grown in popularity, the use of water-filled implementation training has become more accepted amongst strength and conditioning, as well as fitness professionals.

Other forms of “active resistance” include heavy ropes, chains, and sandbags. As these devices are moved, the mass of the device invariably shifts as it is 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.



The SURGE’s 8.25” diameter is double that of the average PVC slosh pipe, but as a result, it’s also nearly half the length, at just 42”. This—along with a unique double-handle design-- makes it far easier to transport and maneuver. Meanwhile, the SURGE’s convenient, removable fill cap and measurement gauge allows athletes and coaches to quickly adjust and customize the device’s weight to meet every individual user’s needs.
