Leg Raise Variations (Exercise Tutorial) // Fitness Penpal


This is the leg raise. Start by lying on a bench with grip support
and lower back flush. Extend the legs, keeping just a slight knee
bend. Forcefully engage your abs to launch your
legs upwards towards the ceiling. Lower under control. The momentum may cause your hips to leave
the bench and that’s fine. To make the movement more challenging, start
with a free hang. Be sure to maintain nearly straightened legs
and tension through the arms and back to prevent swaying. I wouldn’t recommend doing this unless you
can perform 10 or more reps of the first version. If you need to try something easier first,
lie flat on the floor with your arms at your sides and hands pressed into the floor. Start with your knees bent at about 90 degrees
and maintain that angle as you focus your abs pulling your knees toward your chest. For your exercise prescription, check out
