We’re going to dive into the exercise of the “dead hang” and as the name suggests, all you’re simply doing is a dead hang from a bar or anything to allow you to hang off from. There are many benefits in consistently working on your dead hang. It not only promotes shoulder health and stability in the rotator cuff muscles, but it also improves forearm and grip strength if done properly and done at the RIGHT INTENSITY for the individual. In this video we’re going to show you how to perform the dead hang as well as go over simple progressions or regressions depending on the level of strength that you currently have.

*NOTE: This does not completely replace all shoulder exercises for strengthening the shoulder after an injury and should not be performed while in the acute stages of a shoulder injury. Slowly integrate it into your workouts as soon as your body has the capacity to perform this exercise.
