Improving Stomach and Core Muscles No 29 - 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 place a Buso ball in front of us. We then jump on it, performing a 180 degrees turn in the air landing (our face now facing our initial jumping point) and stabilizing ourselves as best as we can with, bending our knees and backs as much as needed to do the job. We then jump down completing a full circle (meaning we turn another 180 degrees jumping down to the direction we began with). We start again but now jumping to and turning to the other direction.


1. The amount of sets, their duration and the length of time of each set, 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 hands and legs, and not only our body core, because they have worked, and thus shortened as well.

Enjoy the Sweat
