In this training video Epic Fitness trainer Jessica Keene explains how to perform the leg lift exercise from the gym at West 6th Tempe. This movement is a great core movement that strengthens the hip-flexors and lower abdominal region.
The keys on this movement are:
- Keep the back and neck straight
- Dorsiflex the feet
- Keep the legs straight
- Keep core engaged
- Range of motion is 12 – 18″
- Slow controlled breathing
This movement can be integrated into your circuit training or added as an independent core strengthening exercise. The rep range for leg lifts varies with strength and skill, so start low and build up to 30+ repetitions.
