Leg Raises, Roman Chair

Type: Abs
If you really want an intense exercise for the lower abdominals then straight leg raises in a roman chair are the ones to do. They will work the lower abs really hard along with the upper abs and oblique's and the quads in the front thighs. If you find it tough to do them with straight legs, then bending the knees slightly will make it easier and take a load off the lower back. As you get stronger reduce the bend in the knees until you can do them with straight legs.
