Welcome to our brand-new series featuring calisthenics expert Al Kavaldo. This week, Al demonstrates four progressions for the hanging leg raise. This exercise is a phenomenal core strength developer. Don't underestimate the progressions though. As well as building you up to the full movement, they are strength builders in their own right.

The progressions are:

  • Hanging bicycle
  • Hanging knee raise
  • Half hanging leg raise
  • Full hanging leg raise

Once you have mastered the full hanging leg raise, give these variations a go:

  • One arm hanging leg raise
  • Twisting hanging knee raise
  • Windshield wiper
  • Skin the cat
  • Rollover

Every Sunday, we feature a new bodyweight strength training video from calisthenics expertAl Kavadlo. Al is also famous for smiling while performing some of the most difficult bodyweight exercises imaginable!
