4. Toes-to-Bar and Hanging Leg Raise
This gymnastic movement is an advanced version of the knees-to-bar raise and hanging leg raise. It utilizes the lats, core, hip flexors, biceps and smaller muscles in the back. This exercise requires the body to bow from a global extension (hanging hollow body position) to a global flexion (pike position).
This exercise isn’t for everyone, though. You must master the hanging straight leg raise and a proper “kip” first. Once you get strong enough, do low reps with no kip action.
