I did 50 leg raises a day for 14 days — here’s what happened to my abs

If like me, you’re on a quest to achieve a defined midsection, leg raises are one exercise that can help. Personally, I incorporate leg raises into my gym routine once a week. I’m certainly not a slave to them, but on the flip side, I definitely could push myself to do more of them in my ab workouts.

Leg raises are pretty much exactly what they say on the tin — they’re an ab workout that involves lowering and raising the legs, using the core muscles as well as the hip flexors. In my understanding, there are three different types of leg raises — lying leg raises, hanging leg raises, and then the leg raises done using the Captain Chair frame — that weird-looking machine you’ve probably spotted in the gym.
