We are going to show you a very effective exercise for your abs and obliques.
This exercise that focuses on the core of the entire body is extremely difficult. This is because it combines strength and control within the core, along with grip strength.
To do this exercise correctly, you need to be strong enough to bring your legs up to the bar and isometrically contract to hold yourself up.
Then you need to rotate when twisting the legs to each side. But the most difficult part is to resist the rotation, and that’s stopping your legs from falling to every side after the twist.
If performed this exercise correctly, your upper body is going to be tucked up while you progress your legs sort of a windscreen wiper.
HOW TO DO IT:
You need to hang from a bar, pulling down with your lats and engaging your shoulders.
Then you need to squeeze your anterior core to bring your toes up toward the bar and maintain control of your obliques and move your legs side-to-side, trying to keep them together.
If you are not that flexible or haven’t performed this in a while, you can lower your legs to one side as far as you can without twisting your hips or losing your grip.
- Lie down on the floor and extend your arms out to the sides.
- Raise your legs until they form a 90-degree angle.
- Helped by the arms, move both legs to the right side and then to the opposite.
- You must repeat it between 15 and 25 times.
