Seated Knee Tucks Instructions
1. Sit down with your hands on the mat, your legs fully extended, and lean back.
2. Bend your legs and bring your knees toward your chest.
3. Hold for a second or two and then fully extend your legs without touching the mat.
Proper Form And Breathing Pattern
When doing seated knee tucks keep your back straight and your upper body stable. Breathe out as you bring your knees toward your chest, squeeze your abs in and use your core strength to stabilize your body.
