After 6 years of CrossFit I hope that I’ve started to accumulate a little bit of wisdom. I’ve noticed how much some people enjoy doing situps after the WOD each day. And I have no problem with it as long as they don’t think that these 2 things are happening: Stronger abs and more defined abs. I was ready to unleash a nice long blog post about it buy Freddy Camacho beat me to it. Here’s his take:
You will be better served if you stop with your “frontal fixation.” For the most part, we are a people that judge ourselves by what we see in front of the mirror from the waist up. Well defined shoulders, muscular arms, a firm (or large) chest, a thin waist, and a six pack of abs. Everyone wants those “mirror muscles” looking good so they can strut around the beach impressing the opposite sex. Most people never stand facing away from the mirror and looking over their shoulder. What’s going on back there? A weak lower back. A flat ass. Since we are talking about the mirror hanging up over your sink, I won’t even get into your skinny and weak legs. Read the rest here…
