4 Progressions for the Hanging Leg Raise (Video)

Hanging Leg Raises – Video Tutorial

The first thing you need to do when performing the hanging leg raise is to get into position. You will have to lie down on your back with your legs extended straight out in front of you. Your feet should be positioned close together so that they are touching each other at the top of your thighs. Your knees should be bent slightly and your heels resting on the floor. Keep your chest up and keep your head looking forward.

Once you are properly positioned, it’s time to perform the movement. There are several ways to do this:

You can start from a standing position, put one foot behind the other, bend over slowly while keeping both hands on the ground, then straighten yourself right away without any rest period between steps.

You can hold a plank position, holding your body in place with your arms stretched out in front of you. Then you lower yourself down until your knees touch the floor and then continue lowering yourself all the way to the bottom.

Or you can perform a lunge or half squat, bending forward slowly while keeping both hands on the ground before bringing them back up again. You may even want to use some sort of resistance such as weights if possible.

Doing these steps repeatedly will allow you to perform the hanging leg raise. Continue doing this until you’ve reached your desired goal.
