    The hanging knee raise is a great way to work your lower abdominal muscles and definitely one of my favorites! If your tired of getting down on the floor to work out your abdominal's this move is a great change of pace and it can work for just about any one. If you have trouble hanging from the bar for long periods of time you can use elbow straps or you can do your knee raises using dip bars. If you need a way to make your knee raises more of a challenge add some extra weight as shown in the video!- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BI7wrB3Crsc It's a great way to build bigger abs. I give it an easy 5 stars!
