How to do knees to chest

These will strengthen your core and prepare you for more difficult exercises.

Jump up and grab a pull up bar with your palms facing away from you, making sure that your hands are about shoulder-width apart. Ideally, the bar will be high enough that your feet clear the ground, but you can still do these if you have a low bar or a doorway bar—they’ll just feel a little bit more awkward.
