This exercise for advanced gym-goers is recommended for the core. “It’s great for the abs; it really helps shape and tone them,” Romero says. It’s a good strength exercise for losing fat because it involves a lot of muscles. It’s a complex and functional movement. Make sure you don’t swing back and forth. Stabilize your spine as you pull your knees towards the chest. Use your abs to raise your legs and knees.
