The midsection, UGH. It’s stubborn, rebellious, and protest change. Let’s focus on how you can properly use Leg Lifts to tone your midsection without adding additional workout days to your already jammed packed schedule.
If your end goals are to have a toned midsection, feel more energetic and looking better in your clothes, then leg lifts are a way to get there.
Leg lifts target your entire midsection and will tone this area effectively (with proper nutrition). The exact muscles leg lifts tone are your lower and middle abs , hips, and thighs; these muscles make-up your midsection, which is identified as the “trouble area” for the working professional and busy parent.
Implementing the proper techniques, such as breathing patterns and body positioning, will give you the “damn, you’ve been working out” look (which is a fancy phrase for we see your body changing).
Here are 4 tips when performing Leg Lifts:
Lay down on your back with your chin tucked, raising your shoulders and legs off the surface (making a V).
Lower your legs, slowly and while inhaling.
Raise your legs, slowly and exhale.
Squeeze your midsection at the top of the leg lift.
Keep your lower back flat throughout the entire exercise.
Focus on your breathing and squeezing your midsection.
To increase intensity, add ankle weights or perform hanging leg raises from a pull-up bar.
It’s your turn! Give this a shot, and let’s build your new body today.
