Overview

The single-leg curl up is a bodyweight abdominal movement that teaches and reinforces abdominal “bracing” for strength training. It is usually performed along with variations of the bird dog and side plank as the “McGill big three.” The curl up can be performed for time or for reps, with or without pauses at the top position, as part of a warm-up or the core-focused component of any workout.
