Leg Raise Overview

The lying leg lift is a variant of the abdominal crunch. It's an exercise that isolates the abdominal muscles.

The lying leg lift is a flexion-based exercise that keeps the lower abdominal muscles in constant tension throughout the entire range of motion.

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.
