Purpose of Exercise:

FOR LOWER ABS.

Execution:

  • Lie on your back on an incline board, head higher than your feet. Reach back and take hold of the top of the board or some other support.
  • Keeping your legs straight and feet flexed, raise them up as high as you can.
  • Lower them slowly, stopping just as they touch the board. (don’t let your heels “bounce” against the board.) 

Breathing:

Breathing is important while doing Leg Raises. As you raise your legs and compress the abdominal cavity, breathe out; as you lower your legs again, inhale deeply.

Note:

For all Leg Raise movements, it is important to tuck your chin forward into the chest in order to flex the upper abdominal area during the exercise.
