Learn how to perform the Knee Raise exercise with the team at Fitness Institute and strengthen the hip flexors and core muscles…

Hold onto handles above the head and let the feet hang. Ensure you have a firm grip as you will be supporting your body weight (Figure 1).

Flex knees and hips, bringing knees up to the chest (Figure 2).

Once you reach the desired height (in this case in line with the hips), extend the hips and knees to return 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.
