There are no short cuts to being in great shape to compete at the highest level.
As a new female grappler, you can learn all of the MMA disciplines, styles and techniques that you want, but if you are not in great physical condition, your ability to effectively compete wanes.
It is important to focus on achieving a strong abdomen along with a steady running program.
Weight lift all that you want, churning out curls, pounding leg presses, performing bench presses and the like, an argument could be made that your body is not going to look sexy perfect unless you have complimented it with an effective stomach flattening routine.
The toughest part of a stomach work out is getting started and in all honesty, keeping inspired, because it can take a long time to see results.
For those of us who have achieved results, we also know that burning calories through a great running program is a big help.
Also multi-tasking can make training easier on you as well.
In the middle of your work day, especially if you work at home, can you take a break and perform ten sit ups?
Try that just four times a day and the numbers will begin to add up.
You can do all of the sit ups that you want but if you are not supplementing that activity with other fitness programs, you will be lacking.
Are you looking for style points? It depends how far you desire to go.
The new obsession with beautiful female MMA wrestling is a global phenomenon.
Whether it is the elite world of the WWE or the unpredictable exciting and dynamic female submission wrestling world, they are inspiring.
It’s like, it can’t get any better than this.
But it can.
What is better than watching female wrestlers compete?
It’s watching female wrestlers with sensational Abs compete.
We have viewed freestyle wrestling competitions live and it is so predictable. If the Fem Competitor involved has even a slightly flabby stomach, she tends to lose.
Almost all of the time.
Human abdominal consist of four muscles which are the rectus abdomens, internal oblique, external oblique, and transversus abdominis.
When performing abdominal exercises it is important to understand the effects, functions, the types of exercises, and think about how to perform this exercise safely.
Abdominal exercises are useful for building abdominal muscles. This is useful for improving performance with certain sports, back pain, and for withstanding abdominal impacts.
According to a 2011 study, abdominal muscle exercises are known to increase the strength and endurance of the abdominal muscles.

“Stephen J. Winter, Ph.D. has been a fitness enthusiast since his teens. He has excelled in weight lifting and distance running and has done well at other sports including rowing, swimming, and bicycling. Now, over 70 years old, he continues to run and exercise – both with body weight exercises and with weights. He is a good example of the effectiveness of the type of exercise programs he has developed.
An engineer by training, Dr. Winter is now retired and has embarked on a second career as a fitness instructor and writer of fitness books. For many years, he was a certified personal trainer.”

Stomach Exercises. Which One Is Best?
Everyone wants to have a flat stomach. Many people, men and women alike, dream of having “six pack abs.” People in this situation automatically begin to think of stomach exercises. But, which one is best? Before I answer this question, let’s back up and think this through a little more. If we do, we will find that the answer is obvious.
There are two reasons why a person might have a large stomach:
- Weak muscles
Let’s talk about the second item on the list first. While it’s true that a regular well-balanced exercise program will cause you to burn some calories and that this, in turn, will result in some weight loss, the only really effective way to get fat to melt away is to adopt a diet based on simple natural foods. When this way of eating becomes a lifestyle, your health will improve and you will gradually attain the natural weight for your body type. I have written a number of articles that give more information about this approach to health and weight loss. Others have as well. If you are troubled by too much fat on your body, you must learn about the right foods to eat and change your eating habits accordingly. This is the healthy natural way to permanent weight loss.
Now, let’s talk about the first item on the list, weak abdominal muscles. This, of course, is where the need for stomach exercises come into play. Poor muscular development in the midsection is a reason for a pot belly — or at least a minor version of it. A pot belly occurs when you let your abdominal muscles relax to the point that your stomach becomes like a “sack” that holds the internal organs; they actually fall to the bottom of this sack.
The muscles of your core (stomach, lower back, and sides) must always be slightly flexed in order for you to maintain proper posture and for your stomach to remain flat. This is called “muscle tone.” If you don’t have a lot of fat on your midsection, these slightly flexed muscles are what will give you six pack abs. If a person with a six pack lets his abs relax completely, he will have a pot belly too (ask a friend with six pack abs to demonstrate this for you)! So, it should be clear that what you need to do to get a flat stomach is to develop your stomach muscles to the point that they will naturally retain this muscle tone whenever your body is erect (you do relax your midsection when you lie down!). Of course, you develop your abs with exercise. So, we come back to our original question: what are the best stomach exercises?
If you want to develop a muscle, you must make it do more than it normally has to do. This is what causes it to strengthen and grow. For example, if you want to develop the muscles of your thighs and buttocks, you will have to do a squatting motion, perhaps holding a barbell on our shoulders. Squats are the “natural movement” for developing these muscles. What is the “natural movement” for developing the muscles of your stomach? Here’s the answer to our original question. It has been with us since primitive man first got out of “bed” in the morning. You simply “sit-up.” That’s it. If you would like to develop your stomach muscles, you must do sit-ups.
The good old-fashioned sit-up is the king of stomach exercises. It is the natural movement of the human body that develops the abdominal muscles. If you want a flat stomach, if you want that illusive six pack, you must do them. There are plenty of other stomach exercises. However, nothing can replace sit-ups.
In a future article I will discuss how to do sit-ups, how many to do, and how often to do them. I will also discuss the merits of certain other stomach exercises.

Dr. Winter is a retired businessman, engineer, and university professor. His passion for his entire adult life — over 50 years! — has been and still is health and fitness. He has excelled in weight lifting and distance running and has done well at a number of other sports including rowing, swimming, and bicycling. He has also researched and experimented with a number of “health-promoting” diets. In both exercise and diet, he has found that a simple natural approach most often leads to long term success. This is the philosophy behind all the reports and eBooks he has written.
