Seated In Out Leg Raise on Floor

Seated In Out Leg Raise on Floor

The "Seated In Out Leg Raise on Floor" is a fantastic exercise that targets the muscles of your lower body, specifically your glutes, quads, and outer thighs. This exercise is perfect for those who prefer to work out at home as it requires minimal equipment and can be easily performed on a comfortable surface, such as a yoga mat or carpeted floor. To perform the Seated In Out Leg Raise on Floor, begin by sitting on the floor with your legs extended straight out in front of you. Place your hands on the floor slightly behind your hips, fingers pointing towards your toes, to provide stability throughout the movement. Engage your core muscles by drawing your navel towards your spine. From this starting position, simultaneously lift both legs off the ground and open them out to the sides as wide as is comfortable for you. Be sure to maintain control and keep your core engaged throughout the movement. Pause for a moment at the top of the movement, then slowly lower your legs back down to the starting position. To increase the intensity of the exercise, you can add additional resistance by placing a dumbbell or weighted object on your thighs or by using ankle weights. Remember to always listen to your body and find a weight or resistance level that is challenging but allows you to maintain proper form. Incorporating the Seated In Out Leg Raise on Floor into your workout routine can help strengthen and tone your lower body, improve your posture, and increase overall stability and balance. As with any exercise, it's important to perform it with proper form and technique to avoid injury. Start with a few sets of 10-12 repetitions and gradually increase the number of sets or repetitions as you become stronger.
