THE EXERCISE SCIENCE BEHIND THE CORE X SYSTEM PROGRAM-
The exercise science behind the CORE X SYSTEM™ is that it works by increasing overall trunk muscle recruitment and preferentially biases transversus abdominals. It increases proprioceptive stimulus and assists in establishing the Core Neutral Posture. The CORE X SYSTEM™ facilitates core contraction through correct functional POSTURE and MOVEMENTS. It is a unique way of integrating core stability to correct movement dysfunction of the upper and lower extremity. The CORE X SYSTEM™ assists in establishing and optimizing a sequential proximal to distal muscle firing pattern. The CORE X SYSTEM™ is a complete Core Strength and Conditioning Program.
What does all that mean? It means individuals get fast, overall toning and strengthening results! It promotes correct posture during exercise and the daily activities of everyone’s life. It’s easy to use. The CORE X SYSTEM™ is portable and can be used anywhere in the home or gym. It can be taken with you on business trips and vacation! You will be amazed at how fast you see and feel results!
THE CORE X SYSTEM™ IS THE EXERCISE AND FITNESS PROGRAM THAT IS USED BY PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES AND PROFESSIONAL SPORTS TEAMS WORLDWIDE!
THE CORE X SYSTEM PROGRAM IS FUN AND FAST WITH BIG RESULTS AND CAN BE USED IN THE HOME AS WELL AS THE GYM!
The CORE X SYSTEM™ evolved out of a system of exercises designed to treat complex pelvic groin, hip, and lumbar-spine conditions. It was realized that the benefits of the CORE X SYSTEM™ program far exceeded treatment of the offending conditions.
As a result of utilizing this system, patients reported an overall general improvement of strength, power, coordination and balance, therefore improving their ability to perform their basic activities of daily living (ADL’s). The CORE X SYSTEM™ is an eclectic approach to exercise based on the work of many top researchers around the world. What started as a crude system of elastics applied in a complex pattern has evolved into a high quality and user-friendly apparatus coupled with a method of exercise.
CORE X SYSTEM™ is a system of exercise that recreates the physical demands of ADL. It takes the patient from the acute setting back to the work place and the healthy athlete or individual to a new level of performance. CORE X SYSTEM™ has evolved from the concepts and findings of many of the top researchers and clinicians around the world. The integration of these complementary principles has resulted in a somewhat eclectic approach that is consistent in its structure and methodology from initial stages to progressive levels of athletic function. The end stage of this process should, in many ways, exceed the physical demands if the individuals needs.
The CORE X SYSTEM™ is designed primarily to teach the “Proximal to Distal” firing pattern of recruitment, balance, and efficiency of movement to trainees, students and athletes predominantly using the anaerobic energy system. However, CORE X SYSTEM™ routines may be also designed to follow an aerobic component, as this type of movement possesses the
ability to demand so much from the entire musculature.
The end stage goal of CORE X SYSTEM™ is to exceed the specific demands of the individual. This produces an adaptation or a training effect, which should result in improved physical performance specific to that individual. However, it is our belief that if elite athletes are put in a situation where they must “sink or swim”, they will usually “swim”. In other words, they will attempt to get the job done even if they are utilizing movement strategies which are inefficient at best, and potentially injurious at worst. This “survival mentality”‘ is magnified in a competitive environment.
The key to the CORE X SYSTEM™ is that prior to this end stage of enhancing performance, the identification and correction of inefficient or
dysfunctional movement strategies has resulted in refinement of motor skill. This biomechanical efficiency is maintained and reinforced through progressive levels of load, speed, reaction, proprioception, and complexity of motor patterns. The end result is the individual should be able to attain greater loads with decreased effort and less stress and strain on various
tissues and systems.
