Coach's Tips

It is a workout that allows the toes to touch the bars, and the range of movement of the abs is very large. I recommend it to skilled people rather than beginners!

How to Toes to Bar

Starting Position

1. Begin in a hanging position from a pull-up bar, with your arms straight and your feet off the ground.

2. Ensure that your core and glutes are engaged to maintain a stable torso.

Proper Form

1. Initiate the movement by drawing your knees up towards your chest.

2. Drive your feet up towards the bar, keeping your legs straight.

3. Once your feet touch the bar, lower them back to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Exhale as you push your feet up towards the bar.

2. Inhale as you lower your feet back down to the starting position.


1. Make sure to keep your core and glutes engaged throughout the exercise to avoid swinging.

2. Avoid using momentum to lift your feet up to the bar; use your abdominal muscles to control the movement.

3. If you are a novice, start by lifting your knees up to your chest and practice controlling the movement before attempting to touch the bar with your feet.
