Straight Leg Lifts

Day 2 of All About Abs April!  Here’s a simple exercise to help build your lower abs and stabilize your core strength. Raise your straight legs off the floor and up to 90 degrees, then lower down to just above the floor. if your back is lifting when you lower your legs, regress the exercises by bending your knees or placing your hands under your tushy (yes I have children).  Aim for 20 reps with 2 to 3 sets. As always, draw in your belly and think about pulling your navel to the ground. Inhale as you lower and exhale as you lift.  Happy lifting!
