Hanging start - A bit different approach
Been doing PE for 3 years now, I have tried everything but from hanging and pumping. So, been trying to reach my length goal for the last 2 years and reached a plateau, I thought that maybe hanging would help.
Looking at my history, I seem to not easily injure myself. That’s why I believe I can go a bit more rough on my unit comparing to most people. So, I started hanging at the start of this month and have not taken a rest day so far.
My problem is that private time is limited so I cannot hang the suggested 10 hours a week. This week, I have only made 2,25 hours so far and I can at most do 3 x 15 minutes today. Meaning 3 hours at most. I don’t see other weeks that can by far exceed this so I decided to, against most people’s suggestion, start off with rather heavy weights right away. So, for this first week, I used 3,25 kg (6,5 lbs) and I have no problems, marks or pain etc. So it seems to work for me. Next week, I will try 4 kg (~8 lbs) and see if I can take it.
After some months, results should come and if not, this method didn’t work. The reason I post it here is that it might be of interest for other hangers.
