Leg Raises:

Step 1:
Lie flat on your back on a gym mat on the floor.

Step 2:
Place your arms out to your sides with your palms flat on the floor for support.

Step 3:
Flex at the hips and keeping the legs straight and your knees and feet together, raise your feet towards the ceiling.

Step 4:
Pause briefly when your hips are at right angles to your trunk and then lower the legs back down in a controlled fashion.

Step 5:
Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.

Top Tip:

Your back and shoulders should remain flat to the floor throughout this movement to ensure a neutral spine.
