Leg Lifts

The leg raise is a strength training exercise which targets the iliopsoas (the interior hip flexors). The Psoas muscle is attached to the vertebrae and so in turn reduces strain on the lower back.

Because the abdominal muscles are used isometrically to stabilize the body during the motion, leg raises are also often used to strengthen the rectus abdominis muscle and the internal and external oblique muscles.
