This exercise is great for abdominal core strength. It’s called leg raises. So we need to start by lying on your back, legs out straight, hands just underneath your bottom. Pull your tummy in nice and tight, keep your ankles together, and raise your legs up just so they’re above the ground. Now take a big breath in and bring them up to 45 degrees, and then slowly lower them back down.
1. Lying on your back with your legs extended, place your hands under your bottom with palms down. Keep your legs slightly off the ground.
2. Raise both legs together to approximately 30 centimetres off the ground. Hold, then lower back down to start position.
Don't forget to follow these steps during your workout:
Step 1: Start off with a warm-up exercise routine.
Step 2: It’s time to do the 2 minute stretch routine.
Step 3: Jump in - it's time to do the exercise programme. Choose one of the four programmes.
Step 4: Now begin the cool-down routine.
Step 5: Time to finish with the stretch routine.
Step 6: Congratulations you just found your 30 minutes of activity today.
