Flat bench leg raises is a bodyweight exercise that helps strengthen the hip flexors and lower abdominals, as well as improve flexibility in the hips. The exercise is performed by lying flat on a bench with your legs extended and your hands gripping the bench for stability. Lift your legs straight up towards the ceiling, keeping them together and your knees straight, until your hips are fully flexed. Slowly lower your legs back down to the starting position without touching the ground, and repeat for the desired number of reps. This exercise can be modified by adding ankle weights or resistance bands to increase intensity. It is important to maintain proper form throughout the exercise by keeping your back flat against the bench and avoiding any swinging or momentum. Incorporating flat bench leg raises into your workout routine can help improve your core strength and stability, which can translate to improved performance in other exercises and activities of daily living.
