Learn how to perform an bent or straight Leg Raise exercise on a bosu to strengthen core and hip flexors with the team at Fitness Institute.
To get started, determine leg position: Straight (Figure 2) or bent (Figure 3)
To begin, bosu is placed in the lumbar curve of back with elbows resting on pads. Grip onto handles and allow feet to hang (Figure 1).
This is the starting position for both straight and bent bosu leg raises.
Brace through the core. From here, flex the hips keeping the legs straight.
The repetition is counted when feet are in line with the hips (Figure 2).
Be slow and controlled when returning legs to the starting position.
Similar to the straight leg raise, brace through the core.
From here, bend the knees then flex the hips, bringing knees to the chest (Figure 3). Once desired height is reached, return the legs to the starting position.
Remember to seek the advice of your fitness trainer, medical and/or allied health professionals, if you are new to exercise or have an injury or medical condition to consider.
