Hanging Leg Raises

Starting Position: Grasp the chin-up bar with arms extended overhead.

Performing the Exercise: Raise the legs upward in front of the body until they reach a 90 degree angle. Hold this position for a 2 count and then slowly lower to the starting position. Repeat this for the desired number of repetitions.

Tips: If it is difficult to support the bodyweight by holding onto the bar, try using straps placed under the arms, which are bent at 90 degrees, to support the bodyweight during the exercise. These can also be done by bringing the knees toward the chest and rolling the hips upward.
