How to Do Raised Leg Plank and Prone Iso Abs
The raised leg plank and prone iso abs should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.
If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the raised leg plank and prone iso abs.
Beginning Raised Leg Plank
1. Start with your hands shoulder-width apart in a plank stance.
2. The line between your shoulders, hips, and ankles should be straight. Keep your core engaged and lift your right leg off the floor to around hip height.
3. Then return your right leg to the ground.
Raised Leg Plank Movement
1. Start off in a plank position.
2. To get there, position yourself as though you're preparing to do a pushup. Bend at your elbows so that they form 90 degree angles and hold yourself up by your forearms.
3. Instead of keeping both toes on the ground, lift up with one leg and keep it off of the ground a couple of inches.
4. While you hold the plank, continuously pump this leg up down in one slow and controlled movement so that it doesn't touch the ground.
