How to Do Hanging Knee Raises

  1. Jump up and grab a bar, placed high enough that you can hang from it with straight legs.
  2. Without swinging and with bent legs, lift your knees as high as you can in front of you.
  3. Lower your legs again, with control.


Hanging knee raises train your abs and your hip flexors. The exercise can be made heavier by keeping your legs straight, which is called hanging leg raises.
