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.
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.
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!
Take the omni directional, reactive platform of Core-Tex and target the glutes in a completely different way. Using just body weight, bands and the challenge of Core-Tex, your glutes will be on fire with these reactive moves. Guaranteed!
Our exercise video below really highlights several of the unique characteristics of the patented motion of Core-Tex. This version of the Split Squat on Core-Tex allows you to target the glutes and posterior hip in all 3 planes AND add the necessary positive stress to the soft tissue structures of the knee. This application will build resiliency against contact and non-contact stressors.
No other environment will allow you to systematically expose the knee to an unlimited number of force vectors in a controlled environment like Core-Tex.
According to the most current Clinical Practice Guidelines from the Academy of Orthopedic Physical Therapy and the American Academy of Sports Physical Therapy in the Journal of Orthopedic Sports Physical Therapy:
"For the greatest reduction in future medical costs and prevention of ACL injuries, osteoarthritis, and total knee replacements, clinicians, coaches, parents, and athletes should encourage implementation of exercise-based ACL injury prevention programs in athletes 12 to 25 years of age and involved in sports with a high risk of ACL injury."
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.
This single subject study was a first to look at individual muscle responses along with acceleration of the Core-Tex platform. Our long-term research goals are to validate the mechanisms and benefit to reactive training and reactive variability.
We would like to thank the team at AKI Movement Lab in Santa Barbara for their work on this project.
