Did you know that your core needs to be able to work in every direction that you can move your trunk and pelvis? As two independent segments of our body, they sometimes need to move as a team but more often move complimentary and independently to one another. And they do this where we spend 95% of waking hours=vertical to gravity.

Add some core work to your Glute Bridge when your upper body is supported on your Core-Tex Sit. As you move through the primary movement at the hips, the trunk motion on Core-Tex Sit has to be controlled from the hips to the core. The motion of the trunk will also influence how the hip muscles work, adding some valuable variability to how the muscles are get stronger.
Shoulder stabilizers and core stabilizers are put to work when we place one hand in the center of your Core-Tex Sit. Controlling and stabilizing the responsive motion of Core-Tex Sit adds an entirely new experience to this traditional strengthening exercise.
Ordinary planks are boring and can have diminishing returns. A plank with your hand on Core-Tex Sit keeps it interesting and has ongoing value due to the variability of the challenges Core-Tex Sit will present to your core stabilizers. It's going to a little different every time, keeping the benefits coming.
