Whilst I'm not entirely sure on whether it develop your abs, or anything like that. I know boxers and probably other fighting sports do these kind of drills to train a fighter to get used to the punches, which does make sense, after being punched and play fighting with my brother for 16 years now, I cN really take a punch and pain doesn't faze me as mix as it did a few years ago.
I know some like to lightly hut their abs, after a strong workout so there's more of a BURN, never knew why TBH looked silly to me, but hey.
Each to their own right

Teaches you to absorb a hit better with controlled breathing.

Ex-Competitive boxer checking in.
I was punched in the face probably 100 times a day for a year and all it did was mentally prepare me for future hits. The last punch before I left hurt just as bad as the first punch I ever received - I just knew how to deal with it. It's the same with abs. I learnt how to position my body to take a hit better, but it didn't do chit for abdominal strength.
If you're thinking like iron body training that monks do, that doesn't actually harden their muscles. They continuously cause micro-fractures in their bones which repairs more dense than the original bone, making it stronger.
INW no, it will not make your abs stronger. But even if it did, why the hell would you want to get punched in the stomach repeatedly when you could just do some crunches? Getting hit isn't a pleasant experience.
inb4 everyone saying that it does is retarded.
