GLADIATOR ABS WORKOUT FOR THE GYM

ABDOMINAL TRAINING FOR MIX MARTIAL ARTS

I put together this workout at the gym the other day.

I chose exercises that literally hit every section of the abdominals while strengthen my core. I always remember my Kru (Moo) at Tiger Muay Thai telling us over and over again during training how important it is to have strong abs.

He would say “YOU MUST HAVE STRONG INSIDES”.

He said that is one of the most important aspects of being an amazing Muay Thai fighter and that resonates into being an amazing MMA athlete.

Your abs and core allow you to generate power force for throws, slams and punches. Your abs and core are critical for the speed and power for leg, body and knockout head kicks. Your abdominals are important for keeping your grappling posture, looking for submissions and staying agile when in the guard. Your abdominals are your key to staying alive while taking devastating punches and kicks to the mid-section.

Simply put, abs and core training is a necessity not an option. And you have to train them in every single direction along all planes with and without resistance. This workout will give you a good idea how to mix up the exercises to ensure you train the entire region.

And if you want the six pack abs then your diet and nutrition is the only way you will be able to see the fruits of your abs training labor. But let’s focus on one thing at a time.

“I must have STRONG INSIDES from Abs and Core Training”.

I want you to remember that every single time you train, go to the gym or do a workout.

“I must have STRONG INSIDES from Abs and Core Training”.

ABS and Core training is a MUST. It’s NOT an option.

Try this workout next time you are in the gym.
