Begin by hanging from a pull up bar with a comfortable grip. Squeeze your abdominal muscles and raise your legs until they are parallel with the floor. Keep your legs as straight as you can throughout the entire movement.Your torso should form a 90 degree angle with your legs. Try to hold this position for at least one second. Next, slowly lower your legs back to the starting position without letting them touch the ground.
The longer you can hold the top position the stronger your abs are, focus on holding this position for longer each time you perform hanging leg raises.
