Coach's Tips

It is a workout that can give a strong target feeling by adjusting the angle compared to regular leg races. When you raise your legs, lift your hips slightly to induce a strong contraction of your abs!

How to Incline Leg Raise

Starting Position

1. Lie on an incline bench, with your back and head flat against the bench and your feet flat on the floor.

2. Place your hands on either side of your body, palms down, holding onto the bench.

3. Lift your legs off the floor and raise them up until they are at a 90-degree angle to your body.

Proper Form

1. Keeping your legs at the 90-degree angle, slowly lower them back down to the starting position.

2. Then, raise your legs back up to the 90-degree angle and hold for a few seconds.

3. Repeat this movement for the desired number of reps.

Breathing Technique

1. As you lower your legs, breathe out.

2. As you raise your legs, breathe in.


1. Make sure to keep your back and head flat against the bench throughout the exercise.

2. Avoid jerky or sudden movements, as this can cause injury.

3. As you get more comfortable with the exercise, you can increase the number of reps or add resistance by using ankle weights.
