Leg Raises on Captain’s Chair Exercise

Leg Raises on Captain’s Chair

Starting Position Stand on the captain’s chair (not pictured) to place your back flat on the pad, your forearms and elbows on the pads, and your hands lightly around the gripping handles. Once in position, lift your feet off of the stand and bring your legs together in front of you, keeping abs engaged.

Action EXHALE: Focus on engaging the abs as you bring your straight legs up in line with the hips.

INHALE: Slowly lower both legs back down to complete one rep.

Special Instructions Keep your lower back flat--make sure it does not arch. Keep your head and neck relaxed into the support. Focus on using the abs, not just the upper body, to lift.
