Active hang from bar

The active hang from bar is a static exercise that involves isometrically squeezing the shoulders into the sockets and activating the muscles of the upper back and core. It can be used to improve pull-up form or to do more pull-ups, but also has postural and shoulder health benefits.


  1. Builds grip, upper back, and core strength that can carry over into pull-ups
  2. Teaches proper shoulder position that can carry over to a wide range of strength exercise
  3. Activates important postural muscles
  4. Can improve overhead shoulder mobility and stability
