Target Muscle Group: Abs

Leg Raise Overview

Lying raise is an excellent exercise for targeting the muscles in your back and shoulders. This exercise helps to strengthen and tone these muscle groups, which can help to improve your posture and reduce pain in these areas. Additionally, this exercise can also help to improve your balance and coordination.

 How to Do It

  1. For support, lay supine with your legs straightening and your hands under your low back.
  2. While keeping your legs straight, raise your legs towards your forehead and contract your abdominal muscles.
  3. When your abs have contracted fully, and your legs are slightly higher than the parallel, lower your legs slowly back to the original position.
  4. Complete the number of repetitions required.

Exercise Tips

  1. To improve your mind-muscle connection, exhale as if you are blowing out candles.
  2. You can choose to do more anti-extension or anti-rotation movements if your lower back bothers you.
  3. Avoid placing your hands behind your head, as this can cause strain to the neck.
