|Exercise Name:||Hip Raise|
|Equipment Required:||*N/A—Body Weight Exercise|
*Although this exercise is pictured below as a body weight exercise, you can increase the amount of resistance by holding a dumbbell or medicine ball between your feet. Therefore, we have included this abs exercise with our dumbbell exercises as well as our body weight exercises pages.
Exercise Description and Instruction:
Because you bend at the waist and dynamically contract your abdominals, this movement is more effective at isolating and strengthening your abs than some much more popular exercises – the lying leg raise and hanging leg raises. When doing leg raises, your abdominals don't actually contract and crunch like an accordian but instead stay static.
This version is done lying on an exercise mat, however, you can also hang from a pull up bar or some other apparatus. See the hanging hip raises exercise instruction guide.
