The C Posture, as classified by the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI), is one of the more common golf swing characteristics the detrimentally impact the golf swing. Watch TPI Level 3 instructor, Ken Miller demonstrate 3 profoundly impactful exercises using Core-Tex.
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...
You can't treat thoracic mobility like hip, or shoulder or ankle mobility. The hip, shoulder and ankle are individual joints. The thoracic spine is major body segment with multiple joints involved, plus the neurologically sensitive diaphragm.
Percussion guns such as the Hypervolt, Theragun or Nimbl have shown benefits in improving range of motion and pain discomfort through assumed mechanical, neurological and fluid dynamic changes to the tissue. In this video, we apply those benefits to the patented motion of Core-Tex to further influence the tissue under dynamic conditions using the rhythmical, oscillating motions of Core-Tex.
Addressing the myofascial lines using the patented motion of Core-Tex to create "bottom up", body wide reactions that you just can't do otherwise. The oscillating motion available on Core-Tex has a unique effect on reducing muscle tension and making the tissue overall more compliant to lengthening.
Sometimes the gleno-humeral joint, scapula and rib cage need to be reminded how much they need to cooperate. Using the rotational aspect of Core-Tex and driving a bottom-up reciprocal rotation between the pelvis and thoracic spine gets this done for you. This "coil to uncoil" combined with various arm reaches enhances scapular motion and reinforces the shoulders connection obliquely to the opposite hip both through the anterior and posterior oblique lines.
The benefits of the controlled, dynamic motion of Core-Tex for mobility is especially beneficial to the senior population. The ability to target all aspects of the tissue, while hydrating and keeping the nervous system engaged goes far beyond any floor based static stretching. All movements are safe, controlled and dynamic utilizing all the movements of Core-Tex to access areas of the tissue one can not get on their own or even with a therapist or coach.
The participants immediately feel the results and show objective improvements in ROM!
This is a great mobility warm-up that hits the body 3 dimensionally, primes the nervous system and gets the heart rate and circulation going. Try this before your next workout as it preps you from top to bottom and experience Reactive Training!
There are so many benefits to the unrestricted rotational component to Core-Tex, especially for rotational athletes. But one application often overlooked is the influence the motion of Core-Tex will have on a ground-based limb.
This demo uses the basic mechanics of a golf swing to highlight how the athlete can promote improved hip rotation on the fixed leg. Core-Tex guides the movement on the ground based leg by rotating with the contralateral limb in contact with Core-Tex.
Hip mobility is a big concern for most. Finding a strategy that works in ways that nothing else does can be a game changer. This hip/groin mobilization move takes full advantage of all the available vectors of Core-Tex to target the tissue in areas you may have never explored before.
Similar to ourhalf kneeling version, the standing version puts more emphasis on the single joint tissue and allows us to integrate the ankle and to some extent the rear foot. Follow along to understand the best ways to maximize this mobility move.
Take a "known" exercise to the reactive environment of Core-Tex and you get a much more comprehensive experience. This version of the Curtsy Lunge can be used as a gentle mobility warm-up or ramped to a high-intensity reactive exercise. With the transverse plane motion of Core-Tex, you get:
1. Rotational demand on the glute/hip complex
2. The need to accelerate, decelerate and re-accelerate rotation from the hip
3. Challenge rotational stability at the knee as the foot and lower move faster and arrive earlier and stay later than the hip
4. Thoracic spine rotational mobility as the upper body is fixed while pelvis rotates below.
5. Reactive variability at all involved joints as each repetition is different based on the motion of Core-Tex.
