Exercise Of The Week: Single-Leg Raises

Follow my blog with Feedly

This week's exercise is single-leg raises. Single-leg raises are a beginner exercise that focuses on the strength of your abs and hips. The best part is it doesn't need any equipment.

How to do single-leg raises:

  • Lie down on your back, and put your hands beneath your hips for support.

  • Then lift your legs up together until they form a right angle with the floor.

  • Slowly bring one of your legs back down to the floor slowly (not letting it hit the floor).

  • Bring it back up to your other leg so they are both at a right angle and repeat alternating legs.

Tips for single-leg raises:

  • Maintain the natural curve in your lower back as you lower your leg.

  • Make sure you keep your head and shoulders on the floor throughout the movement.

  • Don't allow your leg to touch the floor when you lower it.

I hope this how-to has helped you and you will try single-leg raises in one of your workouts real soon.
