Double Leg Raises

Position 1

Position 2

 

  Muscles incorporated in exercise ; Upper and lower abs, lower back 

This exercise is ideal for toning and working your lower abs, remember when making the exercise it's important to control the movement 100%. Slow movement will help activate the stomach muscles and will make you work more helping stabilise the movement. The slower the exercise the harder the work!

1. Position you hands behind or next to your buttocks, palms down towards the floor. Keep your legs straight through out the exercise your knee locked together.

2. Raise your feet towards the sky; try to get as vertical as possible. Hold for 3 seconds then gently lower to the floor.

3. Repeat until reps are complete, if you need more resistance you can place a bag on your feet.
