1. How does Core Stix work?
Core Stix can be used to effectively work every muscle group in the body in a way that you have never before experienced. Core Stix trains the body in an upright position or functional position, so that your core muscles are engaged in just about any exercise you do. This allows you to get the absolute most out of your workout! You can change how much your core is engaged or how much you focus on your target muscles by changing your foot position, posture, or even hand grip. The rods of our patented workout system provide progressive resistance (which is better for your joints), providing maximum resistance at the peak of your motion.
