This core exercise targets abdominals and upper body muscles, particularly your arms.
Start position: Grab a chin up bar (you can also use the monkey bars) with your hands, positioning your arms shoulder-width apart, and let your entire body hang. Engage your back muscles, pulling your shoulder blades down, so you don't feel like your arms are being pulled out of your shoulders.
Movement: Without swinging your lower body, pull your knees to your chest, sucking your belly button back to your spine, tightening up your abdominals. Lower your legs slowly back down and repeat.
Perform 5 to 10 repetitions, take a 15- to 30-second break, and repeat for 2 to 3 sets.
