This technique builds stomach or abs muscles and begins with holding the bar with shoulder-width grips. Hang from the bar with arms in straight line and the body hanging down. Then begin by contracting abs and hips in order to lift both knees up and close the distance to the chest. Then hold for 5 seconds before lowering the legs to the original straight down condition. Best done and great results generated by keeping both knees are raised equally high and performing sufficient repetitions to increase the intensity of the muscle development.

 Wide grip pullup

This exercise targets upper back and side ribs. This wide grip ensures your side ribs are taxed to max. Begin with a wider grip typically 2 times your shoulder width and then pulling your entire body up. Once you bring your chest close or even touch to the pull up bar, hold and then slowing lowering your body to starting point and then repeat this as many cycles as possible.

The above exercises are usually varied as necessary for different muscles and as such implementation and choice is a personal preference.
