Hanging Knee Raise

The hanging knee raise is an exercise that targets the muscles of the abdomen, particularly the rectus abdominis and the obliques. To perform the exercise, you will need a bar or other apparatus that you can hang from with your arms.


Here’s how to do the exercise:

  1. Grip the bar with an overhand grip, hands shoulder-width apart.
  2. Lift your feet off the ground and engage your core to keep your body stable.
  3. Lift your knees up towards your chest, keeping them bent at a 90-degree angle.
  4. Pause for a moment at the top of the movement, then slowly lower your legs back down to the starting position.
  5. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.


It’s important to keep your body straight and your core engaged throughout the exercise to get the most benefit. It’s also a good idea to start with a lower number of reps and gradually increase as you get stronger. As with any exercise, it’s important to listen to your body and stop if you experience any pain or discomfort.
