knees to elbows training exercises?

I am not sure if I should put this thread under exercises or under starting, however, I choose to put it here.

I am new in the world of crossfit but I am starting to get hooked. I have 1 years of weight lifting experience, so I can do most exercises with a decent technique.

At yesterday's WOD we had to do knees to elbows but I couldn't even do one.

Do you have suggestions to exercises I can do strengthen the muscles used when during knees to elbows?

Re: knees to elbows training exercises?

Knee raises when hanging from bar
Knees to chest when living on back on floor while holding to squat rack with hands
An mat situps

Progression we use for getting to knee to elbows

You can also hold in the chinup position and pull yourself into the ball position when raising knees. Hard to describe but works for many who can't do pull up grip
