Iron Flow is one of three parts to an IBX workout, and honestly, it's our favorite one. Simply put, Iron Flow is the perfect hybrid of strength and cardio: it combines two or more weighted movements to create one seamless, fluid movement.

See how Gladys combines a Squat with an Around The World for her Iron Flow:

Iron Flow Example: Squat + Around The World

These chained movements are performed with a lighter weight than if they were done in isolation. By connecting these exercises through a seamless flow, you gain so much more compared to doing movements in isolation:

  1. Work several muscle groups across multiple planes of motion: up, down, side to side, Iron Flow gives your full body a challenge!
  2. Improve body awareness: by moving seamlessly through multiple movements, you're also working on improving your stability and balance!
  3. Increased core strength: dynamic movements require a stable and strong core to move the body. Put those sit-ups aside and shred those abs in a much more engaging way!
  4. It's just plain fun: like a puzzle you’re putting together, the goal is to spark creativity, challenge your body, and find new freedom in the flow.
