PreparationGrasp parallel bars about shoulderwide with overhand grip. Donīt lock elbows. Hold bodyweight with arms and flex legs and hips to raise thighs up to parallel to floor.
ExecutionLower body until arms are flexed right-angled. Keep elbows close to body. Return, keep arms slightly flexed. Repeat.
Variations / CommentsKeeping hips flexed shifts higher workload into hip flexors and waist and keeps torso from bending forward which increases triceps workload.
