In as little as five minutes per day, the Core Laser will immediately improve your quality of life, and also pave the way for continued advancement in your biomechanics. Whether you are a professional athlete or workout once a year, you can benefit from the Core Laser.
In the initial phase of using the Core Laser, your focus will be solely on increasing range of motion (ROM) and learning dynamic hip function. Once you gain a healthy level of functional ROM, you will be ready to increase resistance (by stepping closer to the target) and build strength in the inner, supporting core muscles.
Here are the steps for setting up the target and getting started using the Core Laser:
- Start by mounting the target on the wall so that the x-axis (or center of the target) is at the height of your waist (We have included plastic pins to mount the target with, but tape, wall putty, or other forms of wall hooks work great too.)
- Next, place the Core Laser around your waist, and adjust the belt so that the device is pressed firmly to your pelvis, three inches directly below your navel.
- Now press the button on the front of the laser to turn it on, and facing the target, align yourself so that the beam of the laser begins in the origin of the x and y-axis (or center of the target) Remember during the initial phase of using the product, stand about 5 feet from the target. If you can’t trace the patterns with the laser in their entirety MOVE BACK. If you can do the movements with ease, slowly move closer to the wall.)
- While aligning yourself with the origin (center) of the target, remember to keep a slight bend in the knees and maintain an upright posture.
- It is important to keep the shoulders still while using the product. To accomplish this, there are a few options:
- The first option is to place your arms across your torso so that your right hand is on your left shoulder and vice versa (this is the preferred method).
- Another option (except in exercise two) is to place you hands on your hips. Be very careful with this option as it is great for feeling the proper hip movements, but is less efficient at controlling the shoulders.
- The third option, which is only to be used after a few weeks of use, is to hold a straight object (like a 9 iron) overhead, to isolate the shoulders. This position activates additional muscles groups that will make the movements more complex, but is not recommended if you are experiencing any level of back pain.
