How to do hanging leg raises

If you are a beginner, make sure to do this exercise under the supervision of a fitness instructor. Here are the steps:

* Hang from a pull-up bar, extending your arms upwards and holding the bar with a wide, firm grip.
* Tense up the mid-section of the body and raise your legs gradually until the torso is at 90 degrees with the legs.
* Pause for a few seconds and then lower the legs to the original position. This is one repetition.
