|Lying leg raises
are an excellent abdominal exercise for the lower abdominal muscles but
will not help you to loose weight. To perform lying leg raises lye
down on your back placing the hands face down underneath the lower back
and rear end for better leverage. Bring the knees up (bent legged)
towards the chin while contracting the abdominal muscles. Then return
the legs to an almost straight legged position stretching the abdominal
muscles. The legs should be just a few inches off of the floor at
the starting point. To begin loosing weight from your stomach
area you must begin a good dieting program.
Lying leg raises
are an excellent addition to any abdominal workout and best of all lying
leg raises only require a floor and you. Although lying leg raises
can be done off of a bench if you require more difficulty.
However if your goal
is to remove the body fat tissue that covers the abdominal muscles then
abdominal exercises will be a waste of your time. For the fact is
that abdominal exercises only strengthen, tighten and tone the abdominal
muscles doing nothing to rid the stomach and waistline of its present level
of fat tissue.
A fat burning dieting
program is required to begin loosing weight and to rid the body of its
body fat tissue. Performing abdominal exercises even up to 10 hours
per day will do nothing to burn away body fat tissue.
