Improving Stomach and Core Muscles No 26 - Using a Buso Ball

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 on a buso ball (our hands hold the hard side, while the ball end is on the ground). We then raise one leg off the floor and leave it in the air for a while, put it back and then raise the other leg.


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. 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
