Leg Lifts


Major Muscles Worked:


Set Up:

  • Lie on your mat with your hands either by your hips or under your sit bone.
    Your head is relaxed, and your legs are straight (ish)

The Movement:

  1. Lift your legs towards the ceiling, keeping them as straight as possible.
  2. (optional) lift your hips off the floor at the top of the position pushing your feet towards the ceiling.
  3. With control, lower your legs back towards the floor.

Specific Cues:

  • Do not let your legs rest of the floor between repetitions
  • Do not let your legs flop back to the floor.
  • If this movement causes pain your back, don’t do it, or only work within the range of motion that is comfortable for you.
