David Beckham reveals the brutal abs workout that gave him a rippling six-pack at the age of 48, shocking fans

David Beckham, the soccer icon who’s equally well-known for his impeccable style and athletic prowess,



has shared a video that reveals one of the key secrets behind his enviable body that he’s managed to keep in ship shape well into middle age.

The secret to his killer six-pack abs? A brutal but devastatingly effective exercise: hanging knee raises.

Beckham recently took to Instagram to share a glimpse of his workout routine, featuring this core-



burning move that has become a centrepiece of his training programme under the mentorship of trainer Bobby Rich.


The exercise is a lot harder than it looks, especially if you’re carrying a little more timber than Beckham (as most of us sadly are…).

The technique is straightforward but burns: While hanging from a pull-up bar, engage the core muscles to lift both knees until your thighs are parallel (or just beyond) with the floor. Targeting not only the rectus abdominis‚ the six-pack muscles — but the whole upper body as it grips and holds the hang position, this is a stone-cold killer.

“There are a lot of different variations to make it harder; sometimes one knee up at a time so you have to hang longer, or there are different rotational movements while doing it… I have our athletes do it where they’ll raise their knees, kick their legs out, hold this position, and then come down… ”

Beckham’s dedication to maintaining his physique should serve as an inspiration to a lot of blokes, especially those facing up to the harsh realities of middle age. Beckham serves as a welcome reminder of the importance of consistency, proper technique, and gradual progression in not only achieving but sustaining your fitness goals.
