CrossFit Abs Workouts are a great way to build a strong, stable core that will protect you from injury and enhance your performances in the box. Your core stabilises and controls much of your movements.
The movements of our body occur along three different planes. A great deal of WODs and exercises virtually ignore the third. Here’s how to attack, train and strengthen this weakness using the following CrossFit Abs Workouts.

THE SAGITTAL PLANE
Think about the exercises you do. Squats, thrusters, deadlifts, clean and jerks, pull-ups, handstand push-ups; in all these movements the weight is transferred up and down along a straight line. All these movements occur along the sagittal plane. The sagittal plane divides the body into two symmetrical halves – left and right.
