Hanging Leg Raise

Hanging Leg Raise

1. This exercise is performed by hanging from a bar while keeping the legs straight.

2. Raise both legs at the same time to horizontal level, pause for one second then, slowly lower the legs to the starting position.

Intensity can be increased by making legs straight instead of bending at the knees as shown or placing weights (ball, dumbbell, etc.) between the feet. While hanging, relax your upper body as much as you can; it’s not about gritting strength, but performance under relaxed conditions.
