Les Mills CXWORX
Not many people can fit in a full hour of exercise during the day. We’re sure you get up early enough as it is and have plenty of chores to take care of after work. So what do you do when you want to squeeze in a really good workout in half the time? Join Fit Central for a half hour Les Mills CXWORX class. This fitness class is the best way to strengthen your core and get your heartbeat racing.
What is a Les Mills CXWORX Class?
Have you been wanting to work on your core? Tighten your abs? Strengthen your shoulders? Firm up your butt? Get it all done in this high-intensity workout. The good news is that this Les Mills class is fairly similar wherever you go. So if you’re worried about having to learn new moves with each class, you can look forward to a get-in-get-out class. Here’s a basic layout of each class:
- Warm-up: Get your core ready for an intense workout with various movements lying on your back.
- Core Strength One: Use your whole body lying on your back.
- Standing Strength One: Stand up and incorporate movements using your upper and lower body.
- Standing Strength Two: These will incorporate movements to focus on your butt, hips, and legs.
- Core Strength Two: Get your obliques and hips in motion.
- Core Strength Three: Enhance muscles and build strength in your back.
What Are CXWORX Moves?
During your Les Mills class, you’ll use your whole body to help build core strength and you’ll also focus on more specific movements. Look forward to completing leg lifts, crunches, cross-crawls, hip bridges, oblique crunches, supermans, planks, mountain climbers, squats, and more. Don’t worry if you aren’t sure what these moves are, your fitness instructor will explain what they are and show you how to do them.
Are Les Mills CXWORX Classes Hard?
How hard the class is will depend on your fitness level, but don’t worry if you’re joining this class to get in shape. You can go at your own pace to ensure that the movements are done correctly and to avoid injury. After a class, you will feel sore in your glutes, abs, and arms, but like many workouts, it will get easier as you continue to join classes. Keep in mind that because this class focuses on building strength in your core, you should avoid any resistance training after this class. The last thing we want is for you to hurt your back.
Some Tips For Les Mills Beginners
- If the rest of the class is using a weight plate, don’t feel pressured to use it too. This piece of equipment is an advanced move.
- When the class is incorporating resistance tubes, start with a green tube, which has the lightest resistance. Orange and red tubes have a middle resistance, and black is the hardest.
- Listen to your instructor for how the movement should feel in your body. It’s not always possible to show small adjustments and movements, so you’ll need to pay attention to your body.
Most importantly, remember that Les Mills classes are designed to give you a great workout. When you’re comparing yourself to your neighbor, you may not feel all of the benefits of the class. At Fit Central, we want you to feel confident about your body. Start with a solid core with CXWORX.
