Dead Hangs

The dead hang movement requires increased grip and gross upper body strength, core control, and shoulder stability.

It requires that you hang from a pull up bar in an overhand grip position keeping the core and shoulder muscles engaged.

Grip strength and shoulder stability in this position is important for a variety of athletes including crossfit, barbell, and overhead athletes.

A benchmark to work toward is holding this position for 60 seconds.
