Supercharge Spring Exercises Hanging Abdominal Raises Lateral Flexion


Place your arms into the straps until your elbow shows. Reach your hand up and press into the top of the strap towards the back but do not grasp with your hands. Slowly bend your knees to 90 degrees. Then lift your pelvis and so your knees are above your waist and your thighs are parallel to the ground. Laterally flex your torso to the left and then back to the right approximately 30 degrees.

Watch Anthony Field, Supercharge his spring below and at the same time SWING on the Flying Trapeze!!!!!!!

Watch Dr. Stoxen Supercharge his Spring below in this video taken this year! If he can do it, YOU can do it!

Spring Action:

This exercise strengthens the pelvis suspension system allowing the pelvis to suspend from the rib cage maintain a healthy spring action in the lower back discs.

Special Tip:

You need to breath in and out on every pass to each side. Continue to laterally flex to each side until you cannot do anymore. If you do not have your knees above your waist then stop. As you get better add speed but do not swing your body. Make sure you work the muscles to move the torso side to side.

    Hey Dr. Stoxen, I’m impressed ! I’ve just started to do these exercises and I’m only upto 5 reps at the moment so I’ve got a long way to go. But slow and steady as they say 🙂

  • You are doing well. Miguel Hernandez, AKA Macho, Miguel Came to me for training for the Golden gloves championships in 2003. he was above 220 pounds and very strong benching 300 and knocking out opponents in the ring easily.

    My staff member was showing him how to do the hanging ab exercises. I saw it was having some difficulty with the technique soul I try to help him which frustrated him until he finally said “let’s see you do it”. On the south side of Chicago we call that being “called out”.

    I had been training very hard for any fitness infomercial with John Abdo, so I was doing 1500 reps a day of various abdominal training exercises outlined in the blog. So I jumped up and did 100 reps. He wasn’t too happy about it. But five years later when he won his first national title looked at me and said ” what really motivated me was when you walked me in the gym on those abs”

    what he didn’t realize was that I was also once 220 pounds unable to even do one rep of this exercise. I had to do seated abdominal girls and other abdominal exercises just to be able to lift my pelvis up high enough to be able to do one or two reps. So if you’re able to do three your way ahead of where I was.

    You just keep working it every day and try to do one more or to each time you do the training exercises and you’ll see pretty soon you’ll be able to do 1500!!

    Thanks for keeping us posted on your progress!!!! 🙂

    Wow, thanks very much, that’s a great story and it’s given me all the incentive I need to keep chipping away. No doubt you will hear me cheering in Chicago when I reach my goal.
    You’re a Champ, cheers !

    Hi Dr. Stoxen

    What is the secret to ‘not swinging like a pendulum’ when doing my hanging abdominal raises from my chin up bar please ?

  • Hi The secret is to get your body to hang down while fairly touching your toe to the floor to stop the swing so you can stabilize. Then very slowly raise your knees above the 180 degree position. Get into position slowly then laterally flex as far to the side as you can breathing out with each rep to each side. If you don’t breath in and out on each side rep you will become exhausted too quickly from a lack of oxygen How many can you do so far? 🙂 Send us your video via yousendit or post it on youtube Thanks for commenting
