Hanging oblique knee raise
Planes of Motion
The hanging oblique knee raise strengthens the abs, core and hip flexors.
The rotation generates a strong contraction of the obliques.
Grasp the bar with an overhand grip (palms facing forward).
The arms are straight.
Pull your knees up to one side as high as possible.
Return to the starting position by lowering your legs in a controlled manner.
Perform the prescribed number of repetitions and switch sides.
Keep the core tight throughout the entire exercise.
Lift your knees with a controlled motion. Do not swing your knees up.
To add intensity, perform the exercise with a medicine ball squeezed between your knees or inner thighs.
