This action packed workshop will teach you innovative movement patterns that require top-down instability the way it happens in life. Imagine a firefighter holding a surging hose, a parent holding a wiggling toddler, or an MMA fighter breaking a hold. The Surge harnesses the physics of quickly changing fluid dynamics to replicate unstable demands on the body and creates incredible think-react muscle actions. Learn the techniques, methods and overload principles to orchestrate reactive stability exercises that challenge even your fittest clients.
