Core stregnth is everything from your knees to your pecs. It is very important. It gives alot of power in your punches and your kicks and helps you take body shots. Heres a great article with some examples:

not only in the striking game is it important, with no core strength you are nothing in the grappling game.

Very true. With good core strength you can minipulate your opponent much easier and work on your back easier.

Upon further research(Pat Militich's(sp?)article in the recent Maxim Magazine) Core muscles help stabalize and protect the spine.

Legs, butt, lower back, abs. Deadlift and Squats will give you power.

Squats, deadlift, benchpress, incline bench press, CLEANS, lowerback and abs. Some thing else that is key but hard to find is a hip abducter machine( for your groin and outer legs.

If you're any kind of fighter, you need to make it a priority to work on your core strength. As others have said, it makes a grappler and a wrestler, but as a boxer I'll tell you that it also puts pounds of pressure on the end of your punches.


It also helps with your balance.


Squats are the most basic exercise I know that helps with core strength, but if you want really unorthodox methods, go into the woods with an axe and start chopping. Lumber-jacks have the strongest mid-sections in the world for this reason.


Gymnastics also helps, maybe take a few classes.


For anything else, do exactly what Fedor Emelianenko does in this video. He has the strongest core in the world of MMA because of his workout regimen based on the USSR athlete machine.
