We have been increasing our core strength all month. Have you attended enough to see a difference? Between movements like the overhead squat, sit-ups, knees to elbows, toes to bar, and added skill work, we have hit our core more than twice every week. Without a strong core, many of the movements we do in CrossFit become less effective. Without a strong core, we risk compromising our lower backs when pulling weight from the ground during such lifts as the deadlift or clean. Keeping a tight core can help you stabilize a weighted bar while overhead. Also, a strong core can help generate more power and torque during gymnastics movements like the kipping pullup. Make sure you are keeping an active core at all times.
