Quadriceps, rectus femoris

External oblique Tensor fascia lata

Gluteus medius

Position the feet under the pads, with the torso suspended in midair, hands near the ears:

• Inhale and raise the torso, trying to bring the head to the knees while rounding the spine.

• Exhale at the end of the contraction.

This exercise develops the rectus abdominis. It also contracts the obliques, but less Intensely.

Because of the forward tilt of the pelvis, the rectus abdominis, Iliopsoas, and tensor fascia lata contribute strongly.
