MOTW: Chair Ab Tucks. I’ve had several of you ask me how to target those pesky hard-to-get lower abs. This awesome exercise will help chisel those puppies! Sit-ups can sometimes turn into a momentum-assisted exercise, which means your abs aren’t working as much as they could be. Ab chair tucks give you a static contraction that forces your abdominals to work really hard, without assistance from momentum.
1) Sit in a sturdy chair or stool with your knees pressed together and your hands beside your hips.
2) Round your back and contract your abs tight as you press down with your arms to lift your hips and hover above the seat of the chair.
3) Lower yourself down slowly and repeat.
4) For added difficulty try extending your legs.
Tip: Try not to swing. Keeping the movement slow and controlled without swinging makes the movement even more difficult and more effective. Note: video has been sped up. Have fun!
