Whether you are a runner, obstacle course racer, Crossfitter, boxer, martial artist or literally any othersports enthusiast - you need a strong core. In fact, you need a strong core regardless of sport.

For carrying your shopping to the car, or loading your baggage into the overhead locker - you need to train your core for life. A strong core means fewer injuries and niggles, which means you can get on with beasting the sports you love. That's where our new Core Sliders come in.

In case you don't know, sit-ups and crunches are very much out and anti-extension exercises are very much in. For good. The research is clear on that (1). Core Sliders by BEASTGEAR are the new lightweight, portable and robust  tool you need to build a rock solid core for life. These bad boys can be packed easily in your gym bag or luggage so they can be used at home, in the gym, or in a hotel. Double sided for ultimate versatility, BEASTGEAR Core Sliders can be used on carpets, or hard wood floors to perform a huge range of exercises to target the abdominals, glutes, hamstrings, lats, chest, triceps...pretty much the whole body.

In this video, coach Jade Fadlen demonstrates a full body workout with our Core Sliders.


We love them most for adding a core training component to any training programme. We're using them to tag core training onto Olympic weightlifting, rock climbing, OCR racing, running, boxing and Jiu-Jitsu specific programmes. Our guys are seeing tremendous results when they ditch the traditional sit-ups, and train the core the right way.

By adding just a few sets of core sliding to your training sessions, you'll be activating the deep core muscles, and training the core to do what it does best: protect your spine, and transfer power to your hips, shoulders, arms and legs - allowing you to lift heavier, jump higher, climb faster, punch harder and train injury free. Grab your set here, and enjoy the benefits of safer core-training that actually works.

REACH YOUR GOALS. BEAST YOUR GOALS.
