- Sit on bottom edge of incline board and place weight between
feet. 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 completely
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 or without
added weight until more resistance is needed. Also see Spot Reduction Myth
