yeah absolutely...one arm dumbell snatches are great...one arm exercises teach your body to stabilize and improve your core strength in the process...

For some reason I'm a big fan of the ab wheel or do pilates, it's no joke.

I've always found that training my core for wrestling was best done in a more practical way, as in no crunches or anything easy like that. I read a quote about core strength for olympic lifting that said something like you are lifting standing up, so train your core for that. Following that, I would say to try awkward or harder moves for your core-

snatches
deads
widowmakers
twists
get ups
slams
OH work
leg raises

Make sure you focus on breathing, when you are doing a core movement breath out to tighten your core, and remember that when sparring as well, it will help.

deadlifts, both regular, sumo, and stiff-legged, leg raises, any exercise on the stability ball, planks, dumbbell or kettle bell swings.

If you want the best resource thats packed full of JUST core exercises, I recommend you check out Combat Core. I bought it a few months ago and it literally has over 100 core exercises including pictures.

You can read a review for it here: http://www.bestmmatrainingworkouts.com

Best,

Derek

Yes, it does, assuming you're hitting dirt and not concrete, of course.

Thats funny, you know I never saw anybody do that excersize before Fedor. I saw him in his promo video whacking the tire with a big sledgehammer. Everybodys doing it now, i wonder if Fedors camp were the first on that one?
