Leg raises are without a doubt the single best pre-activation exercise.
Not only that but you can also use the leg raises as the core exercise of your abdominal training plan.
- 1Hang on a bar with shoulder-width grip
- 2Raise the legs slightly so they don’t touch the ground (slightly feel the tension in the abs area)
- 3Look up and raise the legs up (if you’re a beginner, raise the knees)
- 4Contract the abs strong up top and go back down slowly
