“Abs… A Nice Side Effect…”

Posted: July 18, 2018 in Uncategorized

More ABS!!!

And Heavy Deadlifts…

Hello/Good Bye Core!!!

“Greg Glassman, CrossFit Founder and CEO, was quoted saying “We don’t do abs, we do midline stabilization.” It sounds kind of snobby and elitist, but really, Glassman is making an important distinction. Your ‘midline’ does not just include your abdominals, or six-pack muscles. In reality, ‘core strength’ means spinal stability, and this goes far beyond our abs.

Midline stability relies not only on your core musculature, but on your body’s prime movers too. These include the muscles in your hips, glutes, hamstrings and spinal erectors. Midline stability refers to the capacity to maintain neutral spine under load through full range of motion. It takes awareness and control of all these muscles to keep the spine stiff and stable, from the top of the head to the base of the sacrum. The ability to maintain a stable midline goes the other way too; it allows you to utilize the prime movers more efficiently.

I’m commonly asked, “what do you do for abs?” My answer; everything, and we don’t stop at abs. Almost every movement you perform at CrossFit requires you to engage your midline and maintain a neutral spine.

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