Leg Raise

Lower abs

Coach's Tips

It's the best workout to build lower abs. When your back does not stay in contact with the floor and hurting, put your hands under your hip.

How to

Starting Position

1. Lie flat on the floor, with your arms by your side, legs together and feet pointed straight up. 2. Place your hands beneath your buttocks, palms down.

Proper Form

1. Exhale and slowly raise your legs up towards the ceiling, keeping your legs straight and together. 2. Pause when your legs reach a 90-degree angle and hold for a few seconds. 3. Inhale as you lower your legs back down to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Exhale as you raise your legs, and inhale as you lower them back down. 2. Make sure to keep your breathing steady and consistent throughout the exercise.

Precautions

1. Avoid arching your back or using momentum to lift your legs. 2. Start with a low number of repetitions and gradually increase as you become stronger. 3. Avoid locking your knees when your legs are fully extended. 4. If you feel any pain or discomfort, stop the exercise and consult a doctor.
