The corkscrew is an advanced core development exercise.  To perform correctly follow the techniques in the video and description below.

  1. Begin by hanging straight down from a pull-up bar.  Prior to beginning the movement contract the shoulder blades, abs, and glutes to keep from swinging.
  2. Angle torso to the side and using the hips as a hinge point pull your ankles up to touch (as close to) the pull-up bar outside of where your hands are positioned.
  3. With control lower your legs back to the start position and repeat on the opposite side.
