Seated Leg Tucks Instructions

  1. Seated leg tucks are a great all round exercise that hits both the lower and upper abs. Grab a flat bench and position yourself at one end with your buttocks around 1 foot from the end of the bench.
  2. Grasp the bench beside your hips.
  3. Keeping your knees and feet together and using your hands for balance, lay back until you are almost straight out.
  4. Your knees should be slightly bent and your shoulder blades not touching the bench. In one motion, bring your knees in and torso up towards your knees.
  5. Your knees should almost touch your chest at the top of the exercise.
  6. Extend your body back out to the starting position.
  7. Repeat for desired reps.

Exercise Tips:

  1. Perform this exercise slowly to get the most out of it.
  2. You can even add extra intensity by holding a dumbbell between your feet.
