Grab a bar and hang. Make sure that your feet don’t touch the floor.
Inhale and hold your breath as you as you bring your legs slightly behind your body. Then quickly raise your legs up and forward. At the peak slightly above parallel hold the contraction for 1 or 2 seconds as you exhale. Then relax slightly and as you return on starting hanging position. Past for a second then repeat.
- To put your abs in greater stress try to raise your legs higher.
- In the first part of the movement most of the work is for hip flextors.
- Lift your legs as high as possible.
- If the Hanging Leg Raise is too hard, bent your knees a little bit more as you raise your legs.
