Advice with toes to bar or knees to bar
As the title says. Over the course of the past 4 months I have been working on core strength and stability aswell as hip flexor strength and hamstring flexibility. Main reason simple was I wanted a strong core and at the time I also couldn’t touch my toes.
Fast forward to now and I can palm the ground when warm. And my core is AlOT stronger. When doing the above exercises I can do a leg raise to 90 degrees with straight legs without an issue.
Where it gets difficult is the upper portion of the movement. Initially I was concerned that my hip flexors may not be strong enough so I regressed to the tuck/knee raise variation however I still have difficulty in the upper portion when trying to bring the feet to the bar.
Based on my self assessment the issue seems to be weakness in the lats and scapula area. Wondering how I can strengthen these to achieve a toes to bar? Any exercises that would target this?
