Toe Raises

Toe raises are a great abdominal exercise which can be performed anywhere. The exercise really targets the entire abdominal wall but many people do them as an "upper abs" exercise. Regardless of the reason why you have toe raises in your abs exercise program, they are an effective exercise for any part of your abdominals workout.

Toe raises involve laying on the floor and lifting your feet in the air almost directly above your hips. For each rep you lift your feet into the air as high as possible. The reverse crunch lifts that lifts your hips up targets the abdominals.

You can increase the difficulty of toe raises by adding resistance such as putting on ankle weights or using a resistance band. Another way to progress the difficulty of toe raises is to add a rotation of your hips which will work your obliques in addition to your abdominals.
