How to Bent-Leg Raise
You Should Feel This: Abs
Exercise Families: Hip Flexion
Equipment: Yoga Mat
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Lie on your back with hands by your sides. Extend your legs straight, with your heels lifted several inches off the ground.
Drive the hips toward the chest, bending the knees as the legs move toward the torso. Pause briefly, holding the hip flexed position.
Return to the starting position and the bent-leg raises for the specified amount of time.
You should feel this working the abs, core, and hip flexor muscles.
