Improving Stomach and Core Muscles No 25 - The V

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 lay on our back with our arms and legs fully extended. We then raise our leg and arms to touch each other in the air, forming something similar to the letter V. At the point of touching only the upper part of our but is touching the ground.


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

2 .It is recommended to perform this drill on a soft surface.

3. When we finish the exercise it is very important to stretch our legs, and not only our body core, because they have worked, and thus shortened.

Enjoy the Sweat
