- Sit on incline board. Place weight between feet or use no
weight. Lie supine on incline board with torso elevated. Grasp
feet hooks or sides of board for support.
- 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 be performed without
added weight until more resistance is needed. Elevate incline
to increase resistance. Knees may be kept extended throughout
leg raise to increase intensity; see Weighted
Incline Straight Leg Raise. Also see Spot
