Leg Raises, Weighted, Lying Steps:

Step 1:
Lie flat on your back on a gym mat on the floor.

Step 2:
Place your arms out to your sides with your palms flat on the floor for support.

Step 3:
Your feet should be attached to a pulley cable machine.

Step 4:
Flex at the hips and keeping the legs straight with knees and feet together, raise your feet towards the ceiling.

Step 5:
Pause briefly when your hips are at right angles to your trunk and then lower the legs back down in a controlled fashion.

Step 6:
Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.

Top Tip:

You could also use ankle weights, resistance bands or a dumbbell between your feet as a weight instead of a pulley cable. If you are using a dumbbell take care not to drop it whilst the legs are raised.
