Lying Knee Raise

Rating: 0.0/5 (0 votes cast)

Lie on your back on the floor and with your legs extended in front of you. Place your hands either at your sides or behind your head. If you place your hands behind your head, do not pull up on your neck. Your hands are there only for support, not to aid in the movement. Pull your knees into your chest until you upper thighs are perpendicular to the floor and your lower leg should be parallel to the floor. Squeeze your abs and then slowly return your legs to the starting position.

Some people like to lift their hips off the floor once their knees are at the top position; this may help you feel a squeeze in your abdominals.
