Hi, I'm Kristy Lee Wilson. I am a Personal Trainer and Performance Enhancement Specialist. You can visit my website at www.kristywilson.com. Today, I'm going to show you a few hanging leg raise exercises that you can do to help burn lower ab fat. So, the first variation of the hanging leg raise, we're going to do is just a simple knee raise. You want to bring the knees up towards the chest, try to get the knees as close to the chest as you can. Very important when you do this exercise not to use momentum. You want to make sure that you're using the core from, when you reach the top of the movement, hold for a moment then slowly lower the legs back down. Perform the exercise again; you want to do about 15 repetitions for two to three sets of this exercise. The second hanging leg raise exercise we're going to do is a diagonal knee raise. So, this exercise you're going to be hanging, again, make sure you pull the, the shoulders away from the ears. This time you're going to lift the knees up towards the opposite shoulder. It's really going to focus on the obliques, the side of the abs. Don't use momentum, make sure that you're using the abs nice and controlled through this movement. You want to alternate sides, so keep alternating, bringing the knees to the opposite shoulder. The third hanging leg raise exercise we're going to do is quite challenging; it's a straight leg raise. So, you're going to be hanging straight, keeping the knees nice and straight, you're going to lift the toes all the way up to the bar. Very important not to use momentum, almost everybody I see performing this exercise uses momentum. This takes the abs out of the exercise. So, really slowly and controlled bring those toes up to touch the bar and then slowly, very slowly lower down. I'm Kristy Lee Wilson, and we just went through a few different hanging leg raises that you can do to help burn that lower ab fat.
