Improving Stomach Muscles No 4

Stomach 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.


While lying down, and our feet firm on mat, we touch our heals, one at a time, while keeping our back touching the mattress.


1. The amount of repetitions should be decided upon according to our abilities and endurance level both (mental and physical).

2. This exercise helps strengthen our side stomach muscles which helps provide the motion for such techniques as "bobbing and weaving" in boxing or shifting the core from one side to another in grappling.
