Overview

Hanging leg raises are an abdominal exercise that works the rectus abdominis, the external obliques, and the internal obliques. To do a hanging leg raise, start by hanging from a bar with your arms fully extended and your legs straight. Then, slowly raise your legs up until they are parallel to the ground, keeping your back straight and your core engaged. Hold this position for a second, then slowly lower your legs back down. Repeat this for 10-12 repetitions. Hanging leg raises are a great way to strengthen your abdominal muscles and improve your core strength.
