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!
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.
Why not take a "known" rehab exercise and progress it in a novel and functional way? Take a look at how you can create a progression for your rotator cuff patients and athletes.
Take advantage of the motion of Core-Tex, the stability of the handrail and a few mini bands and you have a rotator cuff strengthening exercise that is more integrated and more interesting to your patient.
The thoracic spine is a key link in all sport rotational requirements. Limitations will transfer responsibilities to places that are not designed to rotate the same (like the lower back). Using Core-Tex to create rotation in a novel way-from the bottom up changes the input to the nervous system and creates opportunity for significant improvement. Sprinkle in the variability of the platform and you have a very powerful way to improve thoracic rotation!
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.
Either you golf, you work with golfers or you will work golfers. There are 24 million golfers in the US alone. Want to stand out from the crowd and provide them with advantages no other product can offer?
Then take a look at how Core-Tex inventor, Anthony Carey demonstrates an incredibly effective way to improve swing range of motion AND power with the same motion. Applying principles of Applied Functional Science from the Gray Institute, Anthony shows how to incrementally "load and explode" through all of the transformational zones.
If you really want optimal shoulder health, than the dance that the scapula does on the back of your rib cage is the motion that dictates the playing field. In this video, we take a very fit professional personal trainer, with a history of a distal left pectoralis tear-through a full protocol of scapulo-thoracic mobility and integration.
We always say, Core-Tex plays well with others. As a reactive environment, you can mix and match many of your favorite tools with Core-Tex to enhance and/or vary the challenge. In this video, Core-Tex inventor Anthony Carey and Halo inventor Bryce Taylor have some fun integrating both products into a workout.
Take this familiar arm position we use on the wall to mobilize the thoracic spine, add the patented motion of Core-Tex and you have a very unique and effective way to enhance scapular motion. This is also a great move to help mobilize the tissue inferior to the posterior shoulder joint.
Using the new Core-Tex Dual, we demonstrate how you can access lateral spinal flexion using the motion of the Core-Tex and the anchor options for the hands on both sides of the platform. The supine, unloaded position and reactivity of the platform allow you to access different segments of the spine during motion.
Choose to keep the motion dynamic, or hold for longer intervals with the upper body anchored and drive the motion to the same side repeatedly by driving rotation with the legs.
