Alternating V Up
Most of you are familiar with the V Up exercise – essentially the combination of a situp and a leg raise. This week, I’m making a slight adjustment. We’ve been doing this for a few weeks now. As you can see, instead of using both legs, you’re only going to lift one leg at a time. This will allow you to use more hip flexor muscles in the active leg as opposed to just abdominal muscles. This may seem easier by only lifting one leg at a time, but it serves more to incorporate different muscles as opposed to making it an easier movement. Do all reps with one leg before switching to the other.
