Dear tio dunxx,
If you are talking about muscle training for kicking, the most popular training (using only body weight) in Kyokushin should be
1)Squats (also squats+mae geri, jumping squats)
For ushiro mawashi I think the abdomen and lower back are equality important (for stability). The oblique muscles in the abdomen facilitate the turning of body to initiate the kick. I do not think a sole focus on the lower body will add a lot of power to spinning techniques.
