For the next lower ab exercise we have T-Rex knee tucks. And it’s just as important as ever that you do this correctly to actually Target your lower abs.
Start with your feet inside the T-Rex and come up into a push-up position then you tuck your knees to your chest and again make sure you try to curl your hips to engage your core.
You can actually also do Pikes with the T-Rex as well and if done correctly it could be the progression for T-Rex knee tucks.
Just remember to curl those hips in. Now we’re going to correct the hanging knee tucks that we were doing earlier.
Just hanging off of a bar and throwing your knees up and down without using your hips is useless.
And I would say that’s what most people do whenever they do Hanging knee tucks or hanging leg raises.
Doing it this way once again only works your hip flexors not your lower abs. Take a wild guess what you have to do to get the ABS involved in this movement? You guessed it you have to have that trunk flexion.
So when you tuck your knees you want to try to curl them into your chest. It’s almost like in all of these exercises
you’re aiming to do crunches with your hips and legs rather than just raising your feet up and down.
And an advanced version of this exercise would have you curling your knees far enough back to touch the bar with your toes.
This exercise if done correctly you will definitely feel it in your lower abs. It’s a very effective and challenging lower abdominal exercise.
