- Lie back on incline board. Grasp handles and place forearms
on arm pads to each side.
- Raise legs by flexing hips and knees until hips are flexed.
Return until hips and knees are extended. Repeat.
- Rectus Abdominis and Obliques only contract
dynamically if actual waist flexion occurs. With no waist
flexion, Rectus Abdominis and External Oblique will only act
to stabilize pelvis and waist during hip flexion. It may be necessary
to completely flex hips before waist flexion is possible; see
Incline Leg-Hip Raise. Exercise can also be performed on
incline board. Also see
Myth and Lower
- Lower incline or lie on floor or bench to decrease intensity.
- Elevate incline or straighten knees more to increase resistance.
Once highest incline has been achieved, exercise can be performed
vertically. Exercise can also be performed with added weight.
