Your calves should be resting on the top of the bench and your legs should be bent at right angles. Touch the side of your head with your fingertips (do not put your arms behind your neck!). Lift your shoulder blades slightly off the mat to start the exercise, then crunch your abs bringing your elbows in towards your waist. Pause for 1 second at the top, and slowly lower back down to the start

Exercise Instructions:

The Roman Chair leg raise hits your lower abs. Setup for the exercise by positioning yourself in the Roman chair. Your forearms should be along the horizontal pads, hands gripping the handles, and back against the back pad. Take your feet off the supports so they're hanging. This is the start position of the exercise. Keeping your legs straight, feet and knees together, raise your legs up as far as possible. Pause for a count of 1 or more, then lower back to the starting position. Repeat for desired reps.



The longer you hold your legs up on each rep the harder the abs work. Increase the hold to make the exercise harder.
