Exercise Performance
Hang from an overhead bar, with your body in a straight line and your feet off the floor. Tighten the shoulders. Lift the locked legs until they are at a forty-five degree angle, and hold. Keeping your knees locked straight, smoothly raise your legs until they are parallel with the floor. This is the finish position (fig. 80). Pause for a moment, before lowering the legs back to a forty-five degree angle. Repeat. Exhale as your legs move up, inhale as they move down. Keep the abs tight.
