Core-Tex already provides an unmatched challenged to core training with its reactive variability. The ability to challenge the core timing, strength and efficiency through multiple vectors is unique to the patented motion of Core-Tex.
Pairing the omni-directional motion of Core-Tex with the vibration of Power Plate during a glute bridge/hip thrust allows for the movement of the torso to create variability to the joints and muscles during the exercise. This version of this popular exercise is great for challenging the posterior chain in novel ways.
Here we take another "known" exercise and make it more integrated and 3 dimensional with Core-Tex. Using the principles of reactive training, the Core-Tex Side Plank changes how, when and where your core fires for stability. Expand the body's resiliency by exposing it to greater variability in stressors and problems to solve.
Combine that with the added opportunity of challenging the shoulder girdle simultaneously and the body integrates the transfer of stability from the core to allow the shoulder to drive the Core-Tex.
Pain is a complex experience. Along with the biomechanical/biological elements, the psychological and social influences around expectations, beliefs, coaches, teammates, etc. all influence the body's response. For the athlete, chronic pain related to their sport can be devastating.
Golf is a prime example of a sport with a highly consistent movement pattern. If that movement pattern produces pain or interferes with the preferred pattern- performance suffers.
This video will show how John Sinclair, Performance Coach fromThe Hive performance center in Davie, Florida took his Division 1 golfer from FSU back to 100% using the environment created by Core-Tex.
The Glute Bridge aka Hip Bridge or Hip Thrust is a very popular and effective exercise. This sagittal plane movement is great for targeting the posterior chain. But what happens when you "super-size" the demand on the posterior hip by driving variable vector forces into the hip from the torso motion on Core-Tex? A completely unique challenge to the neuro-muscular system for stability and strength gains not found with any other product. Add a familiar tool you are probably already using to further vary the environment.
By dictating the user position on the platform, you can target specific motions of the lumber spine and the lower thoracic spine that will improve motion and stability. These lower threshold moves are excellent for the patient or athlete currently experiencing lower back pain. The subtle, fluid motions of the platform can reduce the threat and encourage safe motion. The user can perform completely independently of the therapist or trainer, allowing for ongoing motor learning and movement confidence.
We often refer to mobility as the secret weapon of the Core-Tex®. And if you have ever had the opportunity to go through some of the motions and principles described below. You know exactly what we’re talking about.
The science is there behind the amazing response you get from using the Core-Tex and reactive training for your mobility work. The concept of using subtle, oscillating motions in combination with Core-Tex achieves unique neurophysiological and vector variable, mechanical benefits.
