Leg Lifts for Tighter Tummies

leg-lifts

Most of us want to improve on our physique in some way. For some people it may be stronger arms, or amore defined butt. But if you put out a survey, we’d bet that just about everyone would want a tighter tummy. After all, stomach muscles are sexy and practical. Having a strong core and musculature throughout your midsection will help you in everyday life, not just on the beach. Plus, it’s pretty darn hard to over-do core training – if you do these leg lifts really often, you’re not going to get muscle-bound. You’re just going to develop a cut, super strong midsection. Maybe you’ve tried leg lifts before. Even so, read on – when it comes to workouts, proper technique makes all of the difference!

Leg Lift Directions

Find yourself a mat. Don’t have one? Buy one! Having an exercise mat is one of the most fundamental steps to being a fitness connoisseur, and it’s a smart choice as far as safety is concerned as well.

Lie down flat on your back on the mat

Your hands should be palm-down about four inches away from your sides.

Point your toes and bend your knees. Then lift your legs off of the ground so that your upper leg is perpendicular to the floor.

Keeping your toes pointed, straighten your legs at the knee – the entirety of your legs should now be together and perpendicular to the floor.

Keeping your legs straight, slowly lower them down toward the floor. When you’re within about an inch of the floor, raise them back up to their starting position.

There! You’ve just done one leg lift! One million more to go!

When working out with leg lifts, be sure that you actively engage your core muscles the whole time and breathe, breathe, breathe.
