We often hear the term “midline stabilization” in the context of safety during exercise. An unstable midline can absolutely lead to a greater risk of injury, however it isn’t just about safety. A solid midline allows us to transfer force more efficiently than a weak midline. The heavier KB Swings and Sit-ups in todays workout will test our midline. If we lose our midline stability, especially during the higher skill double-unders, this movement will become increasingly inefficient due to poor transmission of power.
