November Move of the Month – Hanging

At the beginning of September, I had the great opportunity to spend a week interning with Ido Portal in Germany.  While I was there, I met a great women from Northern Ireland and last month (October) she invited her crew to participate in a hanging challenge.  So for the month of October I hung and swung and watched my grip get stronger and my shoulders more open.  So, I decided this month, I should invite my crew to participate.

The details of the original hanging challenge from Ido himself can be found here.  In short, the challenge is to hang for 7 minutes of accumulated time per day.  However, since I am a big proponent of not letting the perfect get in the way of the good, I suggest we start at just hanging every day.  So, it can be in dosages of 10 seconds or 2 minutes.  You can hang for an accumulated time of 1 minute or 15 minutes and each day can be different.  There are no rules.

I do have a few suggestions though…

  • Hang in different places with different grips.
  • Set yourself up for success by identifying easy to access areas to hang.
  • Set an alarm on your phone so you do not forget to get at least one hang in a day.
  • Try to build on your time each day.
  • Don’t bore yourself out of the challenge, find friends to hang with our post your photos on Instagram and tag me!  (@brennabacke)

Today is day 1!  Get our there and hang!
