Hanging Leg Raises Overview

Hanging leg raises are a spectacular way to build strength in your upper body, particularly in your shoulders, back, and lats. It enhances your hip flexor strength, flexibility, and functional strength.

If your fitness goal is to improve leg definition and build core strength, hanging leg raises are perfect.

How to Do It

  • Step up on an elevated platform to hang; it can be a chin-up bar or a tree.
  • Tense your midsection as soon as you are in the hanging position. Start by keeping your legs straight, then slowly lift them up.
  • Lift them as high as possible.
  • Pause for a second, then lower your legs back to the starting position.
  • Repeat for the desired number of reps.

Hanging Leg Raises Tips

  • Make sure you do not swing your legs. Using momentum will not benefit your abs.
  • Keep your torso as still as possible.
  • You can add the weight of a dumbbell on your feet as well for an advanced level.
