CrossFit Ab and Core Workouts
The cornerstone of any top CrossFit athlete is their core strength. Without it you can have all the speed in the world but are doomed to fail without a strong core. As the saying goes “Strong Core – Strong Body”.
Greg Glassman, founder of CrossFit describes 3 top ab exercises as the Glute Ham Developer (GHD) situp, hollow rock and L-sits.
