The side leg raise is a unique variation of the better known leg raise. This exercise is a great way to work on those love handles. These ab exercises that start on your side help focus on the smaller important muscles that help tone and frame your six pack abs.

As your strength increases from doing this exercise, it can create an extra definition line diagonally toward your pelvis, known as the V-cut. This cut is the final piece to the perfect six pack abs and looks great on a flat stomach.

How To Do The Exercise

1. Start by lying on your right side. Support your upper body by resting on your right forearm, and place your left hand in front of you. Make sure your legs are stacked on top of each other with the left one on top of the right.

2. While keeping both legs together, raise your feet up approximately 12 inches and hold the position for one second. This is a fairly small movement, so when you lift your legs up you’ll feel the limit of how far you can raise your legs. DO NOT try to go past the point where your body starts to resist. Instead, just hold it at the position.

3. Return to the starting position. Complete 50 reps or as many as you can. Then roll over onto your left side and repeat the motion.

Tips

1. If you are able to do 50 reps on each side easily. Try holding the position for 3-5 seconds on each rep.

Extra Six Pack Abs Tip

To really get the V-cut visible increase the reps to 100 or do three sets of 50 on each side. Adjust accordingly to what you are comfortable doing. To really get your six pack abs big, you can buy some ankle weights to add resistance to the movement. Make sure to start with light weight and slowly increase it. Doing so will give your body time to adjust to the increasing weight lessening the chance injury.

Extra Flat Stomach Tip

Getting a flat stomach requires a high amount of reps. Therefore instead of doing 50 side leg raise reps don’t set a goal for yourself. Instead do as many as you can until it becomes too difficult to continue the ab exercises. This causes your muscles to max out creating that flat stomach look that is seen on ripped abs.

To increase the difficulty, you can move the arm that rests in front of you and hold it up in the air. This requires your abs to stay flexed longer because your body requires more stability now that you only have one hand supporting your upper body. In turn, this extra element will make the side leg raise more effective.
