Lying Leg Raise

The lying leg raise is not only a great exercise for building lower abdominal strength but it also helps to improve hip mobility and flexibility. This exercise can be done without any equipment or with added resistance such as ankle weights or a medicine ball. It is important to maintain proper form throughout the movement, keeping your legs straight and avoiding any swinging or jerking motions. Additionally, engaging your core and focusing on slow, controlled movements will maximize the benefits of this exercise. By incorporating lying leg raises into your regular workout routine, you can strengthen your abs and improve your overall fitness level.

How to perform Lying Leg Raise

  1. Grab a mat and lay flat on your back.
  2. Brace your position by reaching behind your head and holding onto a pole or sturdy object.
  3. Elevate your legs (at full extension) vertically towards the ceiling until you create a 90-degree bend at your hips. Keep your legs straight and extended.
  4. This will be your starting position.
  5. To initiate, inhale and slowly lower your legs in an arcing motion toward the floor. Continue to descend until your legs are parallel to the floor.
  6. After a brief pause, exhale, contract your abdominals and return your legs along the same path back into their starting position.
  7. Keep your legs extended throughout.
