What is next...Swing your way to fitness!
The cor evolution is now here! The web page, www.mycorevoltion.com isn't even working yet but I just saw the infomercial on channel 96. It came on right before the shark steam mop.
We have a reverse hyper in my gym, it's a great piece of equipment for the hammies, low back and glutes but.....as we always kid "The reverse hyper cures cancer".
The infomercial showed Lou, and deebel amongst others, Louie looks really heavy. They claim the reverse hyper, (which is nothing more than a single plane of motion, posterior chain isolated exercise) is great for "everybody's back" and is "comfortable".
Try telling that to my buddy with stenosis, the reverse hyper would put him in the hospital. They don't tell you about that in the commercial. Also, I don't know what modifications they have made to the commercial model but the reverse hyper is anything but comfortable.
Also, one of the last things that somebody with a low back problem needs is a machine like the reverse hyper which encourages some of the worst compensation patterns on the planet, particularly in the average guy who already over compensates with his low back to make up for lack of hip extension strength in the glutes and hammies.
