While we hold on for sunshine, Coach Greg has an FFXT workout for you to try at home.
Workout Focus: Cross-training, Core stability and lower body strength movements
Est. Time: 30 minutes
Coach Greg's Notes: See the exercise demo's at the end of the workout for help with certain movements. Remember: Quality over quantity.
