A strong a core is the foundation of all training, if you have a strong core it will aid all your other workouts. Head Program Coach, Matt Sadler gives us 10 reasons why we should all be doing CXWORX®.
- Time effective: It’s perfect for your lunch hour or to tag on to the end of your cardio/weights workout.
- Enjoyable: Yes, there can be moments of fun during CXWORX®…laughing has been shown to further work your core! We aren’t here to just do a whole lot of crunches.
- Increase functional strength: Training the abdominals in an upright position leads to increased functional strength. The combination of isolated and integrated core exercises also ensures that your core musculature is challenged in many ways.
