Exercise: "Hip Raises (abs)" by Sruthan Wants Abs

More info / tips / proper technique:

Begin lying on your back, then raise your legs up, mostly straight with a slight bend in the knees so that the soles of your feet are facing directly up. Place your arms down along your body, palms down, and use your hands and arms just enough to stabilize the motion. Don't use them to push your hips up, only for balance. Then raise your shoulders a little off the ground to firm your abs.

Use your lower abs to raise your hips up off the ground. Your legs will also move vertically toward the sky. Hold the ab muscle contraction for a count of two at the top of the motion, then lower your hips back toward the ground, making light contact with the floor without resting your weight -- remember, your want to keep a contant tension on your lower abs throughout all reps. Keep your feet up with soles toward the sky and focus on raising and lowering your hips with your abs.
