HANGING LEG RAISES

Exercise Instructions:

  1. Take an overhand-grip on a PULL UP station.
  2. Keep your feet together, with a slight bend in your knees.
  3. Squeeze your abs to draw your knees up high, aiming for your chest.
  4. Notice how I come wayyyy beyond the 90* angle shown in many muscle building magazines (see video)? This is because we must break a 90* angle to transfer to workload from our hip flexors to our abs. Tilt your pelvis at the top of the rep and squeeze the life out of your abs.

Muscles Worked:

Abs, forearms.
