CrossFit Seminar Staff member Julie Foucher demonstrates the V-up, a great abdominal strengthener, primarily targetting the rectus abdominis or the ‘six pack’ muscle. It’s not an exercise for beginners, or anybody with back, neck or abdominal separation after pregnancy. Build up core strength and stability through crunches and other deep core exercises from your coach before trying this move!
