Knee Raises on Captain’s Chair

Starting Position
Stand on the captain’s chair (not pictured) to place your back flat on the pad, your forearms and elbows on the pads, and your hands lightly around the gripping handles. Once in position, lift your feet off of the stand and squeeze your legs together, keeping abs engaged.

Action
EXHALE: Focus on engaging the abs as you bring your knees up towards your chest.

INHALE: Slowly lower the legs back down to complete one rep.


Special Instructions
Keep your lower back flat--make sure it does not arch. Keep your head and neck relaxed into the support. Focus on using the abs, not just the upper body, to lift.
