My abs are SCREAMING at me today from Monday’s workout. Usually when I do ab work, I don’t feel too sore the next couple of days. When I started adding in gorilla crunches, I’m always sore for a couple days after and I LOVE it. I wanted to share this exercise with you so you can add it into your ab workout!

First I want to say that this is a pretty advanced exercise and I can’t do a full one correctly. It takes a LOT of core body control to not swing all around like a monkey.
Okay..here’s how you do it….
Hang from a chin up bar or a roman chair with handles at the top.
If you are advanced, you can do these in a pull-up position (like Jamie is above). I did mine all in the hanging position.
Crunch your legs up to your chest as far as you can. Bring them down slowly and repeat as many times as possible. You will probably swing back and forth a bit. You can have someone hold your back so it prevents you from swinging as much.
Be ready for a burn!! I couldn’t do many!
Have you ever tried gorilla crunches?
