MARRKO CORE helps you strengthen 29 important muscles

Quite apart from the aesthetics of a flat stomach, maintaining a strong core can improve your posture and stabilize your spine.

MARRKO CORE helps you strengthen 29 important muscles
  • You don’t need to live in the gym to be healthy. Working out for just 10 minutes each day can help you live longer.
  • Likewise, simple exercises can ease common problems, such as back pain.
  • MARRKO CORE does this and more by targeting muscles in your chest, abdomen, hips, and back.

Work out anywhere

Making yourself fitter and stronger can only be a good thing. But many people focus on visual results rather than their actual well-being. While bulging biceps and toned calves may impress your friends, they won’t do anything for your back pain. In contrast, core muscles help to support your body. MARRKO CORE targets this area, focusing on 29 important muscles around your chest, stomach, hips, and back. The device is small enough to take anywhere, and you only need to spend five minutes each day to feel the benefits.

Simple but effective

Important muscles

Between your chest area and your pelvis, an invisible latticework of muscles is essentially holding you in shape. Without them, you would simply fall down like a puppet whose strings have been cut. Consequently, it’s pretty important to keep these muscles in shape.

While situps only target a small fraction of the Lumbo Pelvic Hip Complex (as it’s known by health professionals), MARKKO CORE works the whole lot. It’s a simple yet brilliant device that uses centrifugal force as the main form of resistance.

Hello abs!

Targeted workout

You see, the only way to target the muscles in your sides and your back is to perform some rotational exercises. Think of a tennis swing — most of the power is coming from the side of your abdomen that’s facing the ball. Similarly, MARKKO CORE gets you swinging a relatively modest weight around your body.

Multiple exercises

You can use the device in several ways. The “Tornado” move gets you making circles above your head. The “Marrko” is a figure-eight loop, while the “Hammer” makes the weight swing on a vertical plane. Each exercise reaches a different part of your core, and the weight can be adjusted to your level of strength.

Adjustable weight

You might be thinking — “but that’s just a weight on a rope.” Of course, you would be right. But the genius of MARKKO CORE lies in its adjustable design and simplicity of use.

While planking and pilates are only effective after you have been to many classes, MARKKO CORE is immediately effective. Folks with injuries or disabilities can even use the device while seated.

A pocket-size workout

Furthermore, the dynamic element of the exercises helps you burn calories. It can also promote a better breathing technique and greater balance. In other words, there is every reason to embrace this portable workout.

“MARRKO Core workout system uses centrifugal force to reach an effect that is completely new in the field of workout tools. The centrifugal force formed by spinning MARRKO tips the center of gravity off its natural position in the middle. The brain then sends a command to the deep stabilisation system of muscles along the spine to bring the center of gravity back. As a result, the whole deep group of muscles is being strengthened.” — MARRKO on IndieGoGo

Solid design

MARRKO CORE is both effective and well designed. The device has an antiseptic handle, high-quality bearings, and super-strong rope.

Steroids clearly have a little something to do with his "core" as well.
