Hanging Leg Raises to Bar
- Assume a wide grip on a pull-up bar and hang so that your feet are not in contact with the ground.
- Once steady, slowly lift your knees up towards your chest, doing your best to keep your legs fully extended.
- Allow you upper back to drop backward to create balance and avoid swinging as your legs continue to rise.
- Bring your toes up to touch the bar before slowly lowering them back down to the starting, hanging position.
