This Happens to My Body After Hanging Every Day For 5 Minutes.

Bar Hanging can improve your posture, build bigger muscles, strengthen your spine, improve arm tendons, and even make you a little taller. We’ll show you the secrets to perfect bar hangs right now! Read until the end, where we’ll showcase the incredible benefits you’ll get from just 5 minutes of daily bar hangs. Let’s get into it!

Bar Hanging is a great exercise for beginners and will build strength in the shoulders, arms, forearms, wrists, back, and abs. Bar hangs are great for training the shoulder joint, preventing injuries, and strengthening the upper body. Bar Hanging also builds muscle in the back, which will help with pull-ups and other challenging exercises. Instead of trying to do pull-ups right away, you can start with the simple bar hanging to stretch your muscles and build them up as a beginner. Instead of giving up when you struggle to do a pull-up, you can start with the bar hanging and make progress right away!

Bar hanging is a straightforward exercise to learn, and we’ll share the easy process with you right now. Here are the six simple steps for bar hanging:

First, find an overhead bar that is safe and secure. Make sure you can easily reach the bar and that you don’t need to jump into the bar hang. If you need to get a stool or chair, find one nearby.

Second, grip the bar overhand (with your palms facing away from you), and place your arms shoulder-width apart on the bar.

Third, put your feet off the bench and hang from the bar.

Fourth, ensure your arms stay straight and don’t bend, but keep them relaxed.

Fifth, hang for as long as you feel comfortable. Beginners like to start with just 10 seconds, but you can increase that to 45 seconds or even 60 as you get stronger.

Sixth, step back onto the stool or chair and let go of the bar. If you want to do another bar hang, you can as well.

You can also mix up your bar hangs with a few adjustments. By moving your legs up, you can exercise your abs, which is called the toes-to-bar or knee raise exercise. Remember to squeeze your core and lift your legs for this exercise, and don’t worry if you struggle at first. Knee raises and especially toes-to-bar are some of the most challenging bar-hanging exercises out there. Also, by putting a weight between your legs you can strengthen your back and arm muscles even more. For acrobats and rock climbers, a one-hand hanging will train flexibility and improve individual arm strength too. Stop immediately if you ever feel intense or sharp pain, and talk to a personal trainer if you have any concerns. 

Now you know how to do great bar hangs, but what happens if you did bar hangs every single day for 5 minutes? From just 5 minutes of bar hanging, you would have stronger shoulder muscles, stronger forearms, biceps, and triceps, and better posture. Since bar hanging stretches and works out your spine, you could even gain a little extra height too! By mixing up your bar hangs with our bonus tricks, you could build strong abs or shoulder muscles as well. Bar hanging will help overcome spine diseases like scoliosis, kyphosis, lordosis, osteochondrosis, and more, as it fixes spinal posture and releases pressure on the nerve endings by eliminating the compression of intervertebral discs. Best of all, teenagers can reap benefits to their growth and height with the regular bar hanging.
