Leg Raises

Leg Raise

Leg raises are a traditional abdominal exercise that has fallen out of favor with many exercise physiologists. The reason is that the abdominals don't attach to the legs, so raising and lowering your legs works them only indirectly, as stabilizers.

The muscles that raise and lower the legs are the iliopsoas muscles (hip flexors) that run from the lower back across the top of the pelvis and attach to the upper leg.

We are a big believer in science and exercise physiology, but when it comes to bodybuilding the bottom line is always what works for you, regardless of what the "experts" might think. Remember, every bodybuilder is unique by its own !
