Weekly Training Tip #25 - Hanging Pike Up

This movement targets the rectus abdominis, transverse abdominis, and the internal and external obliques. The Latissimus dorsi, and hip flexors also work synergistically with the musculature that makes up the core to create a hollow position and bring your legs from a full hanging position to the toes being up at the hands on the pull-up bar. This is a great exercise to challenge the entire core as it moves through space in a dynamic fashion. This is a great exercise for building strength in any sports that require large amounts of hip flexion and torso flexion such as sprinting. This is a movement can be programmed as an auxiliary movement where the primary exercise in the series doesn’t require a grip component, or it can be programmed at the end of the work out as a finisher with moderate to high repetitions.
