What is a Long Leg Lift?
A long leg lift is a low level and low intensity exercise. The idea is to raise your leg up on your back, but not so high as to cause pain. A low intensity exercise, you should be able to do for 3-4 minutes, before you get tired. The main difference between a low and a high intensity exercise is the intensity of the movement, which can range from 5-50% of your maximum aerobic power.
This is a very low intensity exercise because most of the weight is on the lower back, and your spine is moving with it. Long Leg Lifts are also used for injury prevention because they can help to reduce muscle soreness after activities like lifting and walking. This is also why they are called a "low intensity" exercise. How to Perform a Long Leg Lift? The movement of your body can be very different. It can move in any direction from your hip up, to your lower back, your head, your upper back, your shoulders, your wrists, your forearms, and even your fingers. This is called "directional movement". If you are not used to it, it might feel strange and awkward at first.
