Hanging Knee Raises

How To Do Hanging Knee Raises Exercise Video Demonstration and Guide

The Hanging Knee Raise is an excellent exercise that targets your abs.

To get started:

  1. Grip a pull up bar with a shoulder width, overhand grip, and hang with extended arms and your legs together.
  2. Contract your abs, bend your knees, and raise your thighs towards your chest by curling your lower back underneath you.
  3. Squeeze your abs.
  4. Don’t just lift your knees straight up.
  5. That primarily targets your hip flexors, not your abs.
  6. Also try not to lean back to create momentum.
  7. Once the front of your thighs come close to your chest, under control, slowly lower your legs back to the the start.
  8. Repeat.
