The Rooboard V Sit-up with a leg lift could be the best exercise ever for total core strength. Firstly the Rooboard creates instability which forces the core muscles to engage to maintain stability.
Secondly, holding the legs in a straight leg position while performing a leg lift promotes a full range of motion through the entire abdominal area. This includes the upper and lower abs regions and the obliques.
If you only have time to perform one exercise for your abs – this is the exercise you need to be doing.
