Balance is essentially a sub-category of reactive training. You can't execute a purposeful recovery strategy until you first react to the change in the environment. Let Core-Tex help prime your nervous system and musculoskeletal system to meet balance needs across multiple scenarios.
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.
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.
Great introductory demo from Dr. Dan and Dr. Emily of Beat Fitness in Wexford, PA. They share with you some of the proper cueing and unique advantages to the core with the patented motion of Core-Tex. A great share for clients and patients for execution.
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.
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.
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.
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.
