I Tried This Functional Strength Workout To Improve My Core Stability And Mobility

I strength train four times a week and I’m no stranger to lifting heavy weights, as well as endurance-focused sessions, thanks to regular CrossFit workouts. But although CrossFit covers most bases, including strength, fitness and mobility, one area of weakness that often holds me back in the gym is my balance and stability.

From feeling wobbly when the barbell is overhead to experiencing lower-back pain after deadlifting, I regularly notice my lack of core stability and strength. I also have a desk job and I know a strong core is one of the best ways to prevent any damage that might be caused by sitting down for most of the day.
