Hip flexors

  • Slide-board knee tuck

    The slide-board knee tuck is a beginner exercise to enhance core stability and strength. By pulling the knees towards your body, the hip flexors are heavily involved.

  • Single-leg slide-board knee tuck

    The single-leg slide-board knee tuck is a beginner exercise to enhance core stability and strength. Pulling one knee towards your body places a higher demand on the core to maintain proper form.

  • Slide-board pike

    As an advanced variation perform the exercise with the legs straight and pull your body into a pike position. The slide-board pike is an intermediate exercise to enhance core stability and strength. This exercise also targets the upper body and the hip flexors.
     
    To put more variety to your workout you can combine the slide-board knee tuck and the slide-board pike, alternating each repetition.

  • TRX knee tuck

    The TRX knee tuck targets balance, stability and core and hip flexor strength. It is a challenging core and abdominal exercise that also requires good upper body strength.

  • TRX oblique knee tuck

    As a progression pull your knees to the side, adding another dimension to the movement. The TRX oblique knee tuck is an intermediate exercise that targets the core and hip flexors. The torso rotation generates a strong contraction of the obliques and gets the muscles of the core even firing more.

  • TRX knee tuck with abduction

    Another progression of this exercise is the TRX knee tuck with abduction. When you pulled the knees to the chest abduct your legs, like the leg action in the breaststroke, to return back to the starting position. The TRX knee tuck with abduction is an intermediate level exercise that targets the core, the hip flexor and hip abductor muscles.

    To put more variety to your workout you can combine these two or three exercises, alternating each repetition.
     
  • Single-leg TRX knee tuck

    The single-leg TRX knee tuck is a challenging exercise to enhance core stability and strength. Pulling one knee towards your body places a higher demand on the core to maintain proper form.

  • TRX pike

    The TRX pike is a challenging exercise to enhance core stability and strength. This exercise also heavily involves the upper body and the hip flexor muscles.

  • TRX oblique pike

    The TRX oblique pike is an advanced exercise that targets the core, the upper body and the hip flexor muscles. Place one hand forward so the torso rotates when you pull your body into the pike position. This adds a second dimension to the pike, increasing the functionality and intensity of the exercise. The torso rotation generates a strong contraction of the obliques and gets the muscles of the core even firing more.

     

  • SB knee tuck

    The SB knee tuck is an intermediate exercise to develop core and hip flexor strength. Balancing on the ball generates a strong contraction of the core muscles.
