Description / Instruction:

To perform the Dumbbell Leg Pull-In ab exercise you must lie on your back and lift your upper legs to 90 degrees with your knees bent. Place a dumbbell between your feet. From this position straighten your legs out until they are parallel with the floor. Keep your back flat and do not drop your feet.  Contract your abdominals and pull your knees back in to the start position. This movement is similar to a leg press.  This ab exercise develops the Rectus Abdominus.
