Calories Burned:  357 calories per hour   (based on a body weight of 150 lbs.)
Primary Muscles Trained:  Lower Rectus Abdominis
Secondary Muscles Trained:  Intercostals
Start by hanging from a chin-up bar with your arms slightly wider than shoulder width apart and your legs hanging straight down; use the arm straps (if available) to eliminate the stress on your forearms. <br />
&nbsp;<br />
With your legs in a fixed, slightly bent position throughout the movement, raise them up towards the ceiling until they are slightly below parallel to the floor; do not allow your body to swing. <br />
&nbsp;<br />
Reverse the movement and return to the starting point. <br />
&nbsp;<br />
The entire motion should be done in a smooth, controlled manner that lasts about 3 seconds, with the downward movement no faster than the upward.&nbsp; <br />
