Chair Leg Raise Instructions

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

​Leg Raise Tips:

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