Are doing leg lifts by holding both legs straight and an inch off the floor bad for the back?

I don't know it it is bad for the lower back but you can modify it to reduce stress on the back. When you do this exercise place your hands, palm down, beneath your butt. Then do the leg lift and remember to breathe.

If you are concerned about your back and are looking for an alternative, several versions of supine double leg raises can be found in Pilates and other well-established fitness methods.

One of the best exercises for buttocks that are recommended by experts is leg lifting over a ball. One lays stomach down on the ball with hands on the floor and one at a time lifts a leg off the floor keeping it straight.
