Hanging Twisting knee raise

This particular exercise isn’t for beginners, but if you are a beginner and want to give it a go, by all means, DO IT! I was actually quite surprised I could manage this ab workout considering I was introduced to it while doing a program I found online. I now implement them quite often for this program I am doing and probably will continue to in the future because I feel as though it is a great workout. This exercise will require equipment or if you rather, use the local playground or a tree in the neighborhood you can hang on to. The goal of this exercise is to keep yourself from swinging, you want a neutral position and to be controlled throughout the workout — not ballistic. Like many other exercises, if you want to take it up a notch, you can add weights. 

How to perform the movement:

  1. (Using a pull up bar) – Hang with your knees together and body straight. 
  2. Flex the hips and knees, draw the knees up. Pulling the knees up to one side going above 90 degrees at the hip (avoid swinging)
  3. Return to starting position and repeat on the opposite side.

Muscles:

  • Lower abs
  • obliques

Tip #7: Don’t more than you can handle

Easier said than done. 

Most people assume you have to lift heavy to see results, but what happens is they compromise their form in order to do so. 

My tip is straight forward: Don’t lift more than you can handle, gradually increase but don’t compromise the form/technique in order to do it, because otherwise you will suffer a possible injury. It’s best to do increase the load over a period of time than to go in balls deep and hurt yourself in the process.
