Sure the glutes are responsible for those big squat lifts and powerful hip extension. But they also play a critical roll in the overall function on the hip joint and pelvic control in day to day activity . And most day to day activities involve a period of unilateral loading of a limb. That is why the single leg glute bridge is such a great exercise.
Limited ankle mobility can be the difference between a well executed squat and significant stress on the lower back and knees. After passive soft tissue work, (foam rolling, massage, percussion, etc.) we have to get active.
We are fortunate to have Coach Mike Guevara offer up some progressions for the rear foot elevated version of the Split Squat with Core-Tex. Having the rear foot elevated ensures that weight transfer to the front leg on Core-Tex.
Percussion guns such as the Hypervolt, Theragun or Nimbl have shown benefits in improving range of motion and pain discomfort through assumed mechanical, neurological and fluid dynamic changes to the tissue. In this video, we apply those benefits to the patented motion of Core-Tex to further influence the tissue under dynamic conditions using the rhythmical, oscillating motions of Core-Tex.
Balance is essentially a sub-category of reactive training. You can't execute a purposeful recovery strategy until you first react to the change in the environment. Let Core-Tex help prime your nervous system and musculoskeletal system to meet balance needs across multiple scenarios.
Core-Tex already provides an unmatched challenged to core training with its reactive variability. The ability to challenge the core timing, strength and efficiency through multiple vectors is unique to the patented motion of Core-Tex.
We love a heavy barbell workout as much as anyone. But for athleticism, reactivity and joint integrity you can't beat Core-Tex. These are just a few examples where you can load up your chest, shoulders and core like only Core-Tex can.
Core-Tex inventor, Anthony Carey was commissioned by the American Council on Exercise to share the "why" behind the value reactive training and reactive variability for the client, patient, athlete or YOU.
