ABOUT CROSS TRAINING / X-TRAINING
The goal of cross training is to improve overall performance. Often one workout activity targets certain muscle groups, but not others - cross training eliminates this imbalance through exercises that target the whole body. These types of exercises are often referred to as functional exercises and simulate conditions a person would encounter in every day life or during strenuous activity.
Being able to jump, pivot, step, pull, and drag are actions that require multiple muscle groups, but singular exercises don’t effectively train for these. It is common to use cross training equipment with high impact interval training (HIIT) as well as circuit training where a variety of exercises are executed in quick succession of one another. These types of workouts often include skipping with speed ropes, swinging kettlebells, jumping onto pylo boxes, performing body weight exercises with a pull-up bar, cycling on a spin bike, rowing, and throwing/bouncing slam balls.
Incorporating cross-training fitness equipment and workouts will enhance performance in all aspects of life and athletic endeavors. Feel free to contact Flaman Fitness for more information or if you have questions about any cross training products.
