Gymnastics Abs Workouts to Develop Stability, Strength and Power for CrossFit Enthusiasts

Working on your core will make most workouts feel easier.

2. Gymnastics Abs Workout with L-Sit


  • 20 Second L-Sit Hold (rings or parallettes)
  • 20 Second Hollow Rock
  • 20 Seconds of Sit-Ups

When it comes to gymnastics abs workouts, there’s no exercise like the L-sit. Many fitness coaches regard it as the most effective ab exercise. Hollow rocks and sit ups are also great for building foundational abdominal strength .

The L-sit hold is a deceptively brutal exercise with benefits that go way beyond the visual. This ultimate abs exercise will improve the health of your shoulders, help you with your lifts, and build functional core strength as well.

3. Handstand Walk Workout

It takes time and practice to master a handstand walk; by raising one arm you commit the entire weight of your body to one point of support, making your chest, back and especially core muscles contract even more to maintain the position.
