Hanging leg raise

Looking for strong abs? Then the hanging leg raise is a must do! This street workout is especially  good for the lower abs. It’s also a good preparation for more advanced exercises like the front lever or the human flag.

The hanging knee raise is an easier variant to start with if you feel like the leg raise is still to difficult.
