Challenge your abdominal muscles with a hanging abdominal split exercise

This is an exercise you can do with your kids. It’s great you take your kids to the park but why not get involved in do some of the Playground Series exercises while your there.

Not only will you have fun with your kids you will also be getting in shape!!!

In the video above Dr. Petrozzi will demonstrate the hanging abdominal split exercise.

This is a very difficult more advanced exercise. If you can do this that’s great if not then this is an exercise you can work up to and look forward too.

Watch Anthony Field, from the Wiggles do the Hanging Abdominal Split in the picture above

Instructions:

  1. make sure you have a sure grip above on a bar or rings
  2. relax the arms
  3. position your legs into a split
  4. lift up from your abdominal muscles
  5. slowly bring your legs down making sure to keep your legs in the split position
  6. repeat
  7. make sure you are breathing in and out

Like I mentioned before, this is not an easy exercise and you might want to have someone spot you as you see i’m spotting Dr. Petrozzi

The Hanging Abdominal Split with Dr. John Petrozzi Dc and Dr. James Stoxen DC

While your in the splits it challenges the muscles in your hips and your abs as well as helping you gain strength around your spine.

One thing to note is when you are lifting up with your legs it helps to take the curve out of your spine which will help take some pressure off of your back.
