Dead Hang Advice


Recommended Posts

I am wondering when to progress to single-arm dead hangs.  Currently I can dead hang double overhanded for about 1:40 at a bodyweight of 86kg.

Not trying to be a smart ass, but how does one train "max strength" using hangs?   

Adding weight to yourself by belt, backpack etc...

Typically max strength for hangs is measured in short duration hangs with added weight if possible. Track your 3 or 5 second max effort hang with whatever load you can bear.

I have no idea why but it never occurred to me to hang for sub-max times with added weight.  I do weighted pullups so the concept isn't foreign to me, but it just never entered my brain.  It makes perfect sense now that I hear you guys say it.  It reminds me of the difference between doing a 3 minute elbow plank versus doing a 10 second all-out RKC plank, TOTALLY different. 


Thank you for the replies!
