Stomach a neutral position with leg lift.
The his exercise requires us to raise the head an shoulders of the floor at the same time we're going to raise foot off the floor but lifting from the knee.
When lifting the head and shoulders off the floor, we raised just an inch or two not too high, The reason for this is to  transversal abdominal m and the internal external obliques and also prevents the lumber from flattening into the floor, at the same time will lifting the foot off the floor Aim here is to make sure that the pelvis does not move and so also prevents the lumber from changing position. this will encourage the abdominal muscles to stabilise the lumber area of the back. and this will time would reduce our tendency for back injury.
The Muscles we are encouraging to work out the transversal abdominal  and the internal and external of oblique.
