Hanging Leg Raise for
Six Pack Abs And A Flat Stomach

The hanging leg raise is one of my favorite exercises. Whether you want six pack abs or a flat stomach, this movement is one of the best ab exercises for your lower abs. Being suspended in air takes all of your other muscles out of the equation. Therefore when you lift up your legs to complete the movement, your abs are getting worked the most.

How To Do The Hanging Leg Raise

1. The starting position requires you to hang straight down. You can hold onto a pull-up bar or you can use arm cuffs to take the pressure off of your forearms. If you are tall, you might have to start with your legs bent, so you don’t touch the floor.

2. Flex the abs to bring your knees up to your chest. Then hold the position for one second.

3. When bringing your legs back down to the starting position, make sure you do it slowly. If you don’t, your body will start to swing from the momentum. The slower you do it, the more strength your abs will gain and the better workout you’ll have.

4. Try to do 4 sets of 15 reps. Adjust accordingly to increase your results for ripped abs.

Tips

1. This exercise isn’t easy. In fact, it’s one of the most demanding ones you’ll have to do. Therefore, don’t despair if you aren’t able to do 15 reps. Instead do as many as you can, and each time you do the exercise you’ll start to see you’ll be able to do more and more!

2. In general it’s better to use the arm cuffs because they don’t allow you to flex your arms to assist your abs. If you don’t have arm cuffs available, then make sure you keep your arms straight when you do the exercise. It’ll be very important that you do these ab exercises slowly.

Extra Six Pack Abs Tip

To increase the difficulty of this exercise, instead of bringing your knees to your chest bring your feet up so they stick straight out in front of you. The higher you can get your straight legs, the better your six pack abs will be worked.

Just make sure that when you get to the fully flexed part of this ab exercise, that you are able to hold it for one second before slowly bringing your straight legs back down.

Extra Flat Stomach Tip

If you are able to do 15 reps of the hanging leg raise, try increasing the difficulty by doing 20 or more. As this becomes easier to do, you can start bringing your knees to the left and right sides of your body. This will give your obliques a workout assisting in the sculpting of your flat stomach.
