Hanging Leg Raise

Lower abs

Coach's Tips

You can target your entire abs by lifting your legs while hanging. You have to use not only the lower abdominal muscles but also the whole body muscles because you have to hold the body that shakes back and forth!

How to

Starting Position

1. Lie flat on your back on a flat surface. 2. Place your arms at your side with your palms facing down. 3. Lift your legs up and keep them straight, so that your body forms a _ shape.

Proper Form

1. Begin to slowly raise your legs up, keeping them straight and together. 2. When your legs reach a 90-degree angle, hold for a few seconds. 3. Slowly lower your legs back down to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you raise your legs up. 2. Exhale as you lower your legs back down.

Precautions

1. Make sure to keep your core engaged throughout the exercise. 2. Keep your neck and back flat against the floor, and avoid arching your back. 3. Do not swing your legs up, but lift them up slowly and controlled. 4. Do not lock your knees and keep them slightly bent.
