I need ideas for exercise involving the lower portion of the abs for someone that has very strong and over-powering hip flexors-as it is my suspicion than this is the case with 99% of people…
Thus I need exercise that are NOT leg raises etc.
So far I have 2 that seem alright but I need more.
1st is the reverse crunch because the hips are maximally flexed thus it has no choice but to recruit abs. Problem is it’s too easy.
2nd is an unnamed exercise that involves lying on your back with your legs straight up and just focus on lifting the pelvis off the floor. the problem is that the legs leaning gives momentum and is thus a hard exercise to perform without using the momentum of the legs.
So does the magical exercise I seek exist?
