Hanging Knee Raises
- Position yourself underneath a pull-up bar. Reach overhead, taking a grip that is at or just outside of shoulder-width. Place a slight bend in the elbows at all times.
- Breathe out forcefully as you bring your knees up and towards your chest. Minimize swinging by contracting your abdominals throughout. Pause at the top of the movement.
- Slowly bring your knees to the starting position. Repeat.
