week 13

Active hang

Since I just left you hanging for a week we are going to progress to an active hang. This one is short and sweet and should only be attempted if the passive hanging from last week is feeling good.

From the passive hang, pull the shoulders down while keeping the elbows locked. You can hold this active hang for a time or try it in reps as I'm doing in the really bad quality video below.

Also, a couple of little 'compensation movements' to watch out for...
1. Don't bend the elbows
2. Try not to point the ribcage up, instead focus on pulling the shoulder blades down.
