Weighted Lying Leg Lifts- legs straight
Start lying on the ground holding a dumbbell on both sides and arms directly straight overhead and legs straight out in front of you. Bring the dumbbell up overhead while you bring your legs up overhead, keeping your toes pointed and legs straight. Exhale as you crunch up then slowly lower your arms and legs back to the starting position. Repeat until you have completed 15-20 reps.
*Use a touch of weight to add a challenge but not too much to where you are strengthening your neck with each crunch. Also focus on slowly lowering to the starting position with a nice and controlled movement. This exercise is more for focus and control than speed and reps.
Weighted Lying Leg Lifts- legs bent
Start lying on the ground holding a dumbbell on both sides and arms directly straight overhead and legs straight out in front of you. Bring the dumbbell up overhead while you bring your knees in towards your chest forming a tiny little ball. The dumbbell will come over your knees to reach your toes. Be sure to keep your core engaged and keeping your toes pointed throughout the movement. Exhale as you crunch then slowly lower your arms and legs back to the starting position, keeping your toes pointed. Repeat until you have completed 15-20 reps.
Remember, you can work abs all day long but if you aren’t eating for purpose, you wont ever see the results of all that hard work. Start eating for purpose and SEE your results!
