Ab Workouts: Captain’s Chair

Leg raises done on the captain’s chair is the second most effective workout for sculpting the rectus abdominis.

The first step to performing this exercise is to stand with your back pushed against the padded chair and get a firm grip of the padded handholds in order to provide stabilization for the upper body. Next, raise your legs with your knees raising towards the chest area. Be sure to contract your ab muscles while raising your legs to receive the fullest effect. Once your knees reach your chest, slowly lower your legs down to the starting position. Repeat this in 1-3 sets of 12-16 reps.
Be sure not to forcefully swing your legs upwards or arch your back to get the most from the workout and to ensure safe exercising.
