Tutorial: Bar Hang


The Bar Hang is a simple whole body pull exercise. As well as engaging the core, it will build the necessary functional strength in the shoulders, arms and back for advanced pulling exercises.


Jump to the bar and quickly tighten the legs, glutes, and core – forming a dish or hollow shape with the body. Keep the arms straight and squeeze the shoulder blades together slightly. Hold for time.


Hanging movements result in reflex stabilization in the shoulder joint, which will contribute to a healthy, injury-free shoulder. The overhead arm position is rarely trained effectively, so the bar hang exercise is unique in the way it builds both strength and range of motion.
