Lying In & Out Abs

  1. Lie flat on your back with your feet flat on the ground. Your arms should be fully extended to the sides with your palms facing down. 

  2. With a slight bend at the knees, lift your legs up so that your heels are about 6 inches off the ground. This is the starting position.

  3. Now while maintaining that same distance off of the ground open both legs at the same time until your legs are wider than shoulder-width apart.

  4. Pause for one second then close your legs while still maintaining the same distance off of the ground.  

  5. Remember to breathe while performing this exercise.

  6. Repeat for the recommended amount of repetitions.


  • As you get more advanced, you can wear ankle weights for resistance.
