Leg lifts are one of the more incorrectly performed exercise. You might have done them before without know the proper intention, so let’s break it down to get the most out of the exercise. Fight the resistance, engage your core!
Start lying on your back. If you have a weak core or lower back, feel free to put your hands underneath your hip bones for support and to create the correct pelvic tilt. Without swinging your legs and keeping them perpendicular to your body, lift them straight up and of the ground. This is a very small range of motion but if you lift your legs by squeezing your core, this can be a a very effective exercise. Inhale while your hips are on the ground and exhale as you contract your core and left your hips off the ground.
I recommend several sets of reps for this exercise to ensure good form without irritating your lower back!
