Dave Gottfield, Founder and President of Spark Motion is an injury prevention and rehab specialist. Here he shows some amazing hip mobility strategies that are uniquely enhanced by the motion of the Core-Tex.
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.
