seated leg tucks

Muscle Groups

Seated leg tucks is an effective abdominal exercise that can help you build a strong core. To do this exercise, you need to sit on the floor with your legs extended in front of you, your hands placed behind your hips for support. From this position, you need to lean back slightly, engage your core muscles, and tuck your knees towards your chest, bringing them as close as possible to your body. Once you have completed the tuck, you need to slowly lower your legs back down to the starting position without letting them touch the ground. Seated leg tucks primarily target the lower abs and hip flexors, but they also engage the upper abs, obliques, and lower back muscles. This exercise is great for building core strength, stability, and endurance. It can also help you improve your posture, balance, and overall athletic performance. However, it is important to maintain proper form and avoid any jerky movements, especially if you are a beginner. If you have any pre-existing lower back or hip issues, you should consult with a fitness professional before performing seated leg tucks or any other abdominal exercises.
