Improving Stomach and Core Muscles No 15

Stomach and core muscles are probably one of the most important muscles we have for supporting our martial art training:

1. They are an important part of our body-core maneuverability.

2. A main component as our core stabilizer.

3. Important for protecting our internal organs against body blows.

There are many ways to improve and train our stomach muscles, in the upcoming articles we will go over some of them.


We assume the push-up position. While holding the static position, we go down to our elbows, one at a time, and then up again to our palms.


1. The amount of sets, their duration and the height level which our feet are kept off the ground, should be decided upon according to our abilities and endurance level both (mentally and physically).

2. This exercise helps strengthen our stomach muscles especially the inner ones used for posture and protecting vital organs, which we usually don't exercise when training dynamic sit ups.

3. It is important to keep the back straight not allowing it to over bend towards the floor.

Enjoy the Sweat
