Hanging Serratus Crunches - Muscles Worked & Benefits

Exercise Type: Multi-joint
Primary Muscles Worked: Serratus Anterior
Secondary Muscles Worked: Obliques

Hanging Serratus Crunches should not be confused with the hanging leg raise. The exercise is performed at one side of the body per repetition and the legs go from side to side rather than through a flexion of the hip. It mainly works the serratus anterior muscles with the obliques also being activated.

  • Place your legs together and let them drop down vertically to start with, then in a strictly controlled manner, elevate the legs up at one side at a time sideways
  • Return the legs to the central starting point, repeating the exercise with the other side.
  • Repeat for the desired amount of repetitions.

Hanging Serratus Crunches - Tips & Safety

  • Do this movement in a slow controlled manner, feeling it in your serratus.
  • Use lifting straps to mimimise strain on your hands and wrists.
