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.
