Tuck Ups on Parallel Bars are exercises designed to develop dynamic abdominal strength. By increasing the tempo between each tuck, you help engage the quick twitch fibers. For best results, maintain good postural control and avoid rounding the back. Scale by performing a standard support hold on parallel bars.
- begin in a support position on parallel bars or two solid even level blocks
- ensure that body is completely upright and upper body is vertically stacked with shoulders directly over elbows and hands
- without rounding back, bend at the hips and bring knees as close to the chest as possible
- once knees touch the chest, open up hip angle and straighten knees to return to original support position
