The Standing Knee Raise is a beginner modification to the more challenging hanging knee raise exercise. This beginner variation targets your abs as well as improving balance.
Watch the STANDING KNEE RAISE: exercise demonstration video above.
To perform STANDING KNEE RAISE:
1. Stand with your feet shoulder width and your extend your arms out to the sides at shoulder height.
2. Contract your core to stabilize your body, then under control, raise one knee as high as you can while bringing the opposite extended arm in front of the body, keeping it shoulder height and parallel to the floor.
3. Squeeze your abs to get a good contraction, then under control, return to the starting position by slowly lowering your knee and plant your foot back into the floor while bringing your extended arm back to the side.
4. Repeat with the opposite leg and arm.
5. Continue alternating sides for reps.
