7 Core Strength Crossfit Workouts to Build Great Abs & A Solid Midline

Having a strong core is vital for almost all exercises in Crossfit. It will help to prevent injury, protect your spine, improve posture and stabilse lifts and movement. Abs are also a nice side effect of building a solid core.

These core strength crossfit workouts are designed to help you become a heathier, stronger and more confident athlete. As always in Crossfit, function comes first, and the core is an incredibly important part of all functional movement, so that is why it must not be neglected. Abs are often mistakenly seen as a sign of a strong core, but it is possible to have well defined rectus abdominis (the outer muscles that form a 6 pack) and still have a weak core.

These workouts are designed to primarily develop a strong core, and secondarily to carve abs into your midline (if that’s your thing). Just remember that without a low enough body fat %, abs will never show.

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
