How to Weighted Leg Raise
You Should Feel This: Abs
Exercise Families: Hip Flexion
Equipment: Med Ball
Trainer: Ashley Steele
Lie on your back with the arms straight, holding a weight above the shoulders. Keep the knees straight and lift the heels a few inches off the floor.
Lift your legs in the air in an arcing path of motion. Be sure to keep your core strong, and both legs straight as you raise the legs.
Move your legs with control— not passing 90 degrees of hip flexion. Pause briefly.
Slowly return to the starting position and repeat the weighted leg raises for the specified amount of time.
You should feel this working the core, hip flexors, and thighs.
