The present study was carried out to compare electromyographically the muscle activation in abdominal muscles between seated leg tucks and hanging leg raises. Six athletically active males range 18-22 years) i.e, age group from 20.33 ± 1.37 years volunteered to participate in this study. The subjects were randomly selected. Biograph infiniti version 5.0 was used analyze the muscle activation in the upper and lower abdominal muscles. To analyze the difference in muscle activation in hanging leg raises and seated leg tucks paired t test was applied in both the groups differently using SPSS. The level of significance was set at 0.05. The results revealed that in comparision to seated leg tucks the muscle activation of the upper abs (t value=4.74, pvalue=.01at 5 df) and the lower abs (t value=5.04, p-value=.00 at 5 df)during the execution of hanging leg raises were statistically different than the seated leg tucks.
