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.
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 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.
All unstable surfaces are not the same. When looking at the literature, it is often very challenging to differentiate between types of surfaces used in any given study or what is being compared in systematic reviews. This matters because they each have their own characteristics. Here, Core-Tex inventor and biomechanics expert Anthony Carey discusses some of the principles.
Showing some love for all the generous Core-Tex Champions around the globe who have been kind enough to add valuable content around Core-Tex and the benefits it brings to users of all abilities. Thank you!
The demands of basketball are diverse. Outside of pure technical skills, the need for quick feet and change of direction in a crowd of people is an ongoing part of the game. The ability to hold your ground when force is applied to your arms and upper body places a huge demand on the vertical core as well.
Core-Tex inventor, Anthony Carey shakes off some of the rust from his playing days to demonstrate some basketball specific conditioning work that can also be a great part of any small group or private training session.
A traditional yoga flow can be progressed by using the Core-Tex platform to introduce some reactive variability to the body. Using the handrail for added stability-the tilt, slide and translation of Core-Tex can create an entirely novel user experience.
By introducing the transverse plane alone to these moves, the body's muscles, joints and righting reflexes are challenged in ways unique to the Core-Tex experience.
This is another great example of how the environment created by Core-Tex can be applied to an incredible number of fitness and rehabilitative objectives.
We all know stretching and creating mobility does not sell as “sexy”. But there is no denying the role it plays in moving better, more comfortably and preparing for activity. The unique motion of the Core-Tex™ provides a completely different experience to improving mobility.
The motion of the Core-Tex™ encourages and guides the body into positions that address the tissue 3 dimensionally with ease. The mobility exercises with the Core-Tex™ are its “secret weapon” and one of the favorite applications of Core-Tex™ users.
