Shins to bar

HangingToesToBarToday my core workout included toes to bar reps, an exercise I used to do pretty regularly but like many things, dropped off to the side over time.  They rival dragon flags in ab shredding effectiveness.  When I do the movement it isn’t really toes to bar, it’s shins to bar due to my poor hip flexibility and very long appendages.  Doing three sets of 5 reps was all I needed to incite some sure ab soreness over the weekend.
