Abs – Straight Leg Raises


Good abdominal and hip flexor strength is required to balance hamstring and gluteus strength. To achieve this hang from a bar or set of wall bars. Raise your feet to the bar and down in a controlled way while keeping the legs straight. Try 3 sets of 5-10 reps. Straight leg chin-ups are also a good way to train abdominal control. All of this will help postural stability when running and making movements in the air. Click the picture above to view the video and download to your video i-pod.
