Gary Gray The Father of Function's Insights on Core-Tex

The brilliant Dr. Gary Gray of the Gray Institute was an early adopter of Core-Tex and immediately saw the benefits and unique opportunities Core-Tex provides to applied functional science.

In this TBT (throwback Thursday) post from a Gray Institute newsletter, Gary talks about many of the benefits available from Core-Tex.

We are proud that Core-Tex is in use at the Gray Institute and also available through their online store https://www.grayinstitute.com/store/category/1/all

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.
