Get #Hydrostrong with the Surge and Kamagon Ball - Review & Workouts!

Get #Hydrostrong with the Surge and Kamagon Ball - Review & Workouts!
This post is sponsored by Hedstrom Fitness in partnership with FitApproach. I was provided with free product from Hedstrom Fitness. All opinions are my own.

Happy Friday! One of my goals for 2017 is to add in more cross training into my training schedule. I've really wanted to work on getting some strength training in more consistently and especially working on my core. Luckily I was picked to be a part of the Surge/Kamagon Ball Campaign and now I'm getting in some great new workouts!

I was pretty excited when I received the equipment. I received the Surge, Surge 3.0, and Kamagon Ball. I was surprised at how big the Surge was and liked how there was also a smaller version. The Kamagon Ball reminds me of a kettlebell but it's got two loops on the end. They are different from normal products in that you add water to them. It is really cool because by adding the water you are also adjusting the weight. So the more advanced you are, or if you just want it to be heavier you can add more water, or if you are starting out like me, you add less water.
Surge and Kamagon Ball Products
These products are part of a new fitness trend in 2017: hydro inertia training. 

What is Hydro Inertia?

"Hydro-Inertia™ is: The utilization of water to create an unstable resistance that increases core strength and stability during exercise. The majority of instability products currently on the market are primarily used as a base that you sit, stand or lay down on.
The efficiency of Hydro-Inertia™ resistance mimics real life situations far more than do static weights such as dumbbells or kettle bells. This is not only important for athletes in their functional training programs. When you play with your children or grandchildren, you are not picking up static weights. When a wrestler or Mixed Martial Artist picks up another person they are battling against unstable resistance." --From Hedstrom Fitness 
I must say these products are great and they make your workouts a bit tougher than what you are accustomed to.
