Hanging Oblique Knee Raise

The hanging oblique crunch an abdominal exercise that targets both the rectus abdominus or “six-pack” muscles, and the oblique muscles. It can be performed hanging from a bar, or if grip strength is a limitation, by placing the elbows in ab straps. If hanging from a straight bar is uncomfortable to the wrists or shoulder, you can also perform them hanging with a neutral grip (palms facing one another)


  1. Targets multiple parts of the abs
  2. Allows you to train in lower strength-focused rep ranges
  3. If performed hanging, can improve grip strength and overhead shoulder mobility
