Right Coast Pro's Fitness Quick Tip: The Bar Hang

You only get one back, and doing everything you can to keep it healthy and functioning propery is vital for an athlete.   

BarHang1 RightCoastPro Wrestling Delaware Sports

Injury Prevention and continual diagnosis/correction of muscular imbalances, and spinal decompression are key to long term back health.

Disruption of the spinal column's dynamic nature, especially through injury, is an invitation to a lifetime of continual rehabbing both it, and the frequent muscular imbalances that are sure to follow.

A very simple, cost effective and time efficient preventive health measure is ‘The Bar Hang’.

“Long before the “exercise evolution” and the development of a multitude of expensive machinery entered the marketplace, the simple aspect of “decompressing” the spine for overall back health was a standard part of every training regime.” – John Davies (founder of Renegade Training International).

After every workout perform ‘Bar Hangs’ to help alleviate stress. Simply find a pull up bar, tree branch, or even a sturdy door and hang by your hands. As you hang tighten up your entire musculature for a slow count of two, then relax and hold for thirty seconds. Done!

“Bar-hang’s” will do wonders for overall back health and should be a regular part of every training session. Quite obviously, they require no specialized equipment or involve technical complexities so make sure after every workout, regardless of your focus to perform “bar hangs”.

Enjoy, and always do what is Right!
