Core-Tex Side Plank and Shoulder Stability

Here we take another "known" exercise and make it more integrated and 3 dimensional with Core-Tex.  Using the principles of reactive training, the Core-Tex Side Plank changes how, when and where your core fires for stability.  Expand the body's resiliency by exposing it to greater variability in stressors and problems to solve.  

Combine that with the added opportunity of challenging the shoulder girdle simultaneously and the body integrates the transfer of stability from the core to allow the shoulder to drive the Core-Tex.

Here are 5 progressions with Core-Tex to hit the tissue of the posterior hip along multiple vectors like only Core-Tex can.  Each of these variations of the popular "Figure Four" stretch has its own benefits and can be suitable for users of all abilities.  

Shoulder and hip separation. Core stability. Core strength.

These are not just fundamental athletic requirements; they are also healthy life requirements. With Core-Tex, we use the terminology “coil and uncoil”. To do this effectively, the body’s core must be both stable and strong...

Using the spiraling motion of the PNF pattern, and the coil-to-uncoil applications of Core-Tex, we can produce an fully integrated movement for the shoulder girdle.  Pay special attention to the cues for hand positioning to optimize the response of the entire shoulder girdle and thoracic back.
