Purpose of Exercise:



  • 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 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.


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.
