Ever wonder if you are doing a tap back correctly? Here are some tips for perfecting the awesome ab focused move.
TAP IT BACK:
Tap backs are designed to work the core. Instead of pulling your body up and down with the momentum of a jump, think of a tap-back as a standing ab crunch — just subtle movement.
Start a tap back in hand position 3. While riding in this position, don't lean too far forward — knees should remain behind the feet while your hips are positioned over the seat, glutes engaged.
To tap it back, keep minimal bend in the elbow, engage your lower abs, and without momentum, slowly shift the hips back further over the saddle, as your chest moves toward the floor. The movement shouldn't appear big or jerky.
As you release your abs, your body will naturally pop up.
BOOM! Tap Back!
