Leg Raises

JCC personal trainer Sara Williams shows you how to do leg raises. This exercise targets the lower abdominal muscles and the hip flexors.

How to Do the Exercise

1.  Lie on your back and extend your legs up toward the ceiling. Your arms should be relaxed alongside your body. Place your hands, with palms face-down, underneath your hips for more support.


2.  Press your low back into the mat. Lower your legs to hover just above the mat.




3.  Raise legs back to vertical and repeat.
