    Interesting abs routine.

    Somebody on another forum posted this clip, featuring a kickboxer doing some interesting ab work.

    Altrought the part of the clip where he gets hit, looks like a little bit "too much" for me, the previous exercises are quite interesting.

    I was wondering if some of you have done anything similar and what are your expereinces in that case.

    Or at least, hope you all enjoy the video.

    That was certainly a lot of conditioning.

    I've done similar exercises but in the prone position lying on my back.I've rarely ever done those hanging from the sealing.I guess it mean to concentrate solely on the ab area.

    Wow!That is a lot of conditioning.

    Can't say I've done anything more than remotely similar to these excerises. I would only do the weighted crunches or the hanging leg raise for core work. Of course, when your hanging rather than prone on your back, you're tempted to be lazy and do the raises from your hips rather than your abs.

    Damn, that rotating leg raise looked murderous.

    Manu has us do some similar exercises. The first one is kinda similar to something we do, except we just pull our knees up and only about as high as solar plexus level. Manu also has us do weighted situps (with a 12lb medicine ball though, not a zillion lb barbell). He had us stand up against the wall with our hands behind our head and punched us in the body before, but I was a wimp and went down after the third shot. When he was punching kat, (50 punches to the body) she acted bored >:(

    oh yeah, and situps with getting hit in the body with a thai pad

    It was a nice display of exercises for those who are serious about competing. I give it a 9, I took one point away for the weighted situps with the guy standing barefoot on barefeet thats Athlete's foot waiting to happen.

    I have heard that hanging knee raises are one of the better ab exercises. Just remember lift with your abs rather than with your hip flexors. Nothing in there looks too extreme, especially for a competitive kickboxer.

    Bad ass conditioning. I've tried those while hanging from a chin-up bar, but before I can actually burn my abs, either my forearms get tired (girly wrists and carpal tunnel for ya), or my lower back begins to bitch. This man has amazing conditioning. :viking:

    When I did Kempo, my instructor used to have us do, say, 100 sit ups and then we had to stay in our butts, legs and torso raised. in that possition he would hit us either with his heel or with a pad (as in the video) a number of times. We had to keep our abs contracted while he was banging us... and we had to shout.

    The shouting sounds like Hong Kong cinematographic bullshit, but after a few hits, it becomes difficult. That and keeping the abs contracted makes breathing more difficult with each hit. Anyways, that really works out your abs.

    The body punching at the end of the clip, that looks too much, but ****, if he can take it, that should be some bad ass conditioning.

    However, I wonder if that is physically sound in the long run to get punched like that on a regular basis as part of his conditioning :icon_scra What do you guys think?

    One thing for certain that I do not like is the ab crunches with a weighted bar on his neck.

    I'm not a fan of ab crunches/sit ups with a weight behind the neck. That ****, pulling the weight up with the bar applying pressure on your neck is a no-no for the neck as far as I'm concerned.

    A better thing for your neck is to have a heavy medicine ball, a plate or a bar held on the chest. Or an abs machine with handles from where to pull the weight without putting pressure on the neck.

    Yeah, when I do that **** it starts hurting my lower back before anything else.

    We also do an exercise where someone drops a medicine ball on your stomach, you pull the ball over your head, do a situp, twist, and toss the ball back to them and repeat.
