If you’re at a level where the Stomach or Ab Series on the Mat no longer challenges you, try doing it while hanging from an overhead bar. It’s an incredible challenge to stabilize your body while moving your legs here because hanging removes the support that you get from gravity and the mat. Try it today and make a mental note of whether you can keep from swinging or bending your elbows while you move. With regular practice, you’ll be able to move only the parts that count.
