Overview

The seated pike is an exercise that targets the abdominal muscles, particularly the rectus abdominis or six-pack muscles. It is performed by sitting on the floor with your legs extended in front of you and your arms extended overhead. Then, you slowly lower your legs behind your head until your toes touch the ground, keeping your arms extended overhead. You then return to the starting position. The seated pike is a challenging exercise, but it is also very effective for strengthening and toning the abdominal muscles.
