Welcome back to the Cave Camp. I'm Coach PJ at CPJ Fitness in San Diego, California for eHow.com. Today, I'm going to show you leg lifts on an ab bench. You have your back flush onto the bench. You'll stabilize your arms somewhere on the bench, either here or underneath the bench, depending on what type of ab bench you are on. When you do your leg lifts, you can do them singly with a straight leg all the way up and do ten reps or you can do both legs straight and do them both up. This is a great way to work the lower abs and you want to make sure you breathe. Now for those of you that have back issue and that's too much torque on the back with the straight leg, it provides a lot of different torque on it so you can reduce the leverage on that by keeping the knees bent and just do a single leg with the knees bent, both legs with the knees bent and it still attacks the lower abs and those are your leg lifts. Once again, I'm Coach PJ at CPJ Fitness in San Diego, California for eHow.com. I just showed you some leg lifts on an ab bench.
