7 Exercises/Workouts for Defined Abs & A Powerful Core for CrossFit

These core strength CrossFit workouts are designed to help you become a heathier, stronger and more confident athlete. These are also workouts for defined abs; but 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 percentage, abs will never show, but that doesn’t mean your core isn’t strong, stable and working for you.
