Rectus Abdominis and Obliques only contract
dynamically if actual waist flexion occurs. With no waist
flexion, Rectus Abdominis and External Oblique act only to stabilize
pelvis and waist during hip flexion. In this movement, even if
waist flexion were to occur after complete hip flexion, the abs
have endured much more stabilizing forces in their extended position
than dynamic forces they could possibly encounter in the flexed
position. Also see Spot

- For less intensity try performing on slightly declined slope.
