Hip Alignment & Mobility


The Play

During intense physical activity, a strong connection exists between engaged core muscles and full hip mobility, directly translating to leg movement and overall performance. With its strong yet flexible layers, the Core Energy Belt enhances intra-abdominal pressure, resulting in improved hip alignment and mobility. In moments demanding precision, the belt helps create efficient coordination between the core and hips, leading to improved performance and reduced risk of injury.

This connection between core engagement and hip mobility becomes even more relevant when equipped with a Core Energy Belt. Your transition into position triggers heightened core engagement with increased hip mobility. Whether you’re playing as a pitcher, catcher, infielder, or outfielder, the belt acts as a catalyst, facilitating optimal movements for improved performance on the field.

Tried and Tested by Chub University

Chubu University in Kasugai City, Aichi Prefecture, conducted tests with the Core Energy Belt, revealing a significant 96% improvement in hip mobility among subjects. The tests also highlighted increased ease in knee lifting and transitioning into the catcher’s position.

The first test examined the height of the player could raise his knee. This test was conducted with a Core Energy Belt, with a conventional stiff belt, and no belt.

The second test examined the depth a player felt comfortable lowering squatting into the “ready position”. This test was also conducted with the Core Energy Belt, with a conventional stiff belt, and no belt.

In both cases, the researchers found that there were statistically significant improvements in hip mobility.

  • “I used to think that a belt had no effect on my play, but when I tried Core Energy, it fit my body perfectly. There is a certain feeling of standing in a well-balanced position. Now I can’t let go of this belt.”
  • “It feels good on me, it fits perfect, it’s tailored to me. With this belt it’s a natural feel, it’s a great product.”
  • “I think this belt is one of the reasons why I am able to maintain my condition throughout the season.”
