Here’s one way to build those six packs we all so strongly desire.
Why do we do so much core work?
All the movements we do in CrossFit originate from the core. All body control movements, gymnastic movements, and movement of external weights begins with core activation. If you want to build your snatch strength, build your core strength. Same goes for anything you are trying to improve. It’s incredible how much core strength you need for things like gymnastics and olympic lifting. The reason we do so many cashouts with core exercises is because that is how important your core is to everything you do on a daily basis. As I used to hear every Saturday morning on my favorite cartoon growing up, “Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.” (G.I. Joe)
One partner must be holding a 6″ hold (as demonstrated in the photo above) at all times – immediate 10 push-up penalty any time both partners are out of this hold at the same time.
Alternate as needed:
100 Power Snatch 95/65#
100 Push Jerk 95/65#
100 Step-Ups 95/65# 20/18″
200 Double Unders
