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.
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.
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.
Stability or physio balls are great. But sometimes they are a pain and sometimes there are better options for certain populations. Watch how effective combining the BOSU and Core-Tex are at creating a novel and effective seated exercise environment.
