Bent Leg Ab Lift

Target area(s): abs

How to perform a bent leg ab lift:

Start laying on your back with your legs at 90 degrees.  Extend your arms straight out next to your thighs.  Your head will be slightly lifted off the ground.

On an exhale lift your shoulders off of the ground, extend your arms further past your thighs and crunch those abs.  Hold for 3 seconds.


Inhale on the way back to the starting position.  Congrats!  You’ve done one rep.

Complete 3 sets of 15 reps, resting for 60 seconds in between each set.
