Boat Exercise

Boat Exercise is a movement I learned from P90X Workout Series. The exercise strengthens your entire body and is incredible because it uses dynamic tension.

How to do a Boat Exercise:

Lay on the ground, face down. Bend your knees and grab your ankles. When you have a secure grip on your ankles extend your legs as far as you can. This will lift your upper body into the air. Hold this position.

Muscle group worked:

Boat Exercise strengthens your whole body but focuses specifically on quad strength.

Target Repetitions for Muscle Tone/Endurance: Hold for a count of 30sec to 1 minute.

Why the Boat Exercise works:

Boat Exercise works so well because your quads have to perform the majority of the work simply to lift your body.

Tips:

It’s important to remember that your body comes up into the air not from arching up but by extending your legs. This is what lifts your body.

Important!: Breath slow and steady through this exercise.
