We’ll demonstrate an abs and obliques exercise that’s incredibly effective.
This total-body core workout combines an oblique twist with a hanging simulated toe-touch and is exceedingly challenging. This is due to the fact that it combines core strength and control with grip strength.
To properly do this exercise, you must be able to lift your legs up to the bar and isometrically contract to keep yourself upright.
When turning the legs to either side, you must rotate. The most difficult aspect, though, is resisting the rotation, which involves keeping your legs from collapsing to each side following the twist.
HOW TO DO IT: Hang from a bar while drawing your lats down and activating your shoulders.
Then, while maintaining control from your obliques and moving your legs side to side, strive to keep them together by squeezing your anterior core.
If you’re not very flexible or haven’t done this in a while, lower your legs as far as you can without twisting your hips or losing your grasp.
Your upper body will be curled up as your legs proceed like a windscreen wiper if you do this exercise correctly.
Do them at the conclusion of your workout with proper technique if you want to keep your core strong.
IS IT EXTREMELY DIFFICULT?
If you find it too tough, try lying down on the ground, which keeps the isometric hold in your core but eliminates the grip strength component.
