FAT BAR HANGS
Did these with the same 2 and 3/8″ diameter PVC handles as last time.
Bodyweight was 220lbs.
-1st set was 20 seconds. Hurt from the first second onward. Used a thumbless grip. This is a 5-second improvement over my previous best time. Mainly due to relaxation of my shoulder – which is quite hard when it’s hurting while under tension.
-2nd set was 12 seconds. Did this hang 13 minutes after the first set. Could’ve held on longer – but the tension in my left shoulder was pretty high and I called it a day.
I tested this exercise – knowing full well it was probably going to test poorly – and it of course tested worse than my baseline range of motion test. I’m mentioning this because it actually tested a bit better (while still testing worse than baseline) this time than it did on the 5th. This might be a case of loosening my shoulder up enough to eventually be able to do the exercise and have it test better than baseline.
