In the video, she can be seen doing hanging leg lift exercise on the hanging leg lift machine which works the abdominals and obliques.
If you are wondering about this core exercise, here is what you need to know.
How to perform it
*Keep your arms on the armpads.
*Hold on to the handles as tight as you can and place your back firmly on the pad. Keep your feet together.
*Maintain your spinal posture and lift up your knees.
*Don’t let the knees bend. This allows for more tension on the abs.
Here’s why you should do hanging leg lift
Help build stability in the lower back
Besides developing abs, regular hanging leg lift helps to lower the risk for back injuries when doing routine activities. Though back muscles are not the focus of the exercise, any abdominal and core exercises tend to provide increased support to the back.
So, how do you drive away your post-vacation blues?
