Today is the day we “shock and awe” our abs with an Exercise that demands respect.
The Hanging Windshield Wiper.
You can keep a grip shown in the above video or go with a harder variation such as this one
Its definitely not an easy move. So Beginners, don’t try this Exercise just yet. Build your core strength and flexibility with other exercises before you take on this monster. Try this one instead. Keep  your legs straight if you want to go harder.
Now to the rest of you...

Strap in because this will really challenge you to the limit. It will also turn a few heads while you do the exercise.

As always, it’s a good idea to consult your physician or a specialist before you try something new. This Exercise will require a certain degree of flexibility and core strength. So you will want to make sure that your back and shoulders can handle the pressure and you won't pull a muscle while doing it.

How many times should you do it
Do 3 sets of 15-20 reps. Or if you have trouble remembering the number of reps, then do as many repetitions as you can in 30-45 seconds. Take about 2 seconds per rep

- Dont swing your entire body from side to side. you should only be moving below the waist. The rest needs to stay absolutely still
- While hanging, make sure your back should be totally parallel to the floor
- To go harder, try to take your legs parallel to the floor when you take them to one side. If you aren’t flexible enough to do so, then go as far as you can without the risk of injuring yourself
- If you feel less challenged, then increase the number of reps or really slow down each rep to 3-4 seconds

FJ Note: You must do this Exercise with focused control and make sure that you aren’t just flinging your legs from side to side. This will work your core to the bone and also make sure you don’t end up hurting yourself.

There you go fitness Lovers. It different, its challenging and its one heck of an Exercise for results. So give it a shot.
