Tip of the Week: Captain's Chair Leg Raise with Tom

Join Tom as he demonstrates the Captain's Chair Leg Raise, an exceptional exercise for targeting your core muscles, especially the lower abs. This move is fantastic for building strength and stability. Here is how to do it:

Starting the Movement

  • Position yourself in a captain's chair with your elbows firmly in the elbow pads and your back against the back pad.

  • Engage your core and keep your feet together throughout the movement.

Executing the Movement

  • Lift your knees towards your chest in a controlled motion.

  • Focus on using your abdominal muscles to pull your legs up.

  • Slowly lower your legs back to the starting position, keeping the tension in your abs.

Aim for 2-4 sets of as many reps as you can do with good form. Gradually increase repetitions as your strength improves. To advance the movement straighten your legs, to make it easier, bend them. Challenge yourself, but remember that form is key!
