Kegels While Hanging
I had done almost all my hanging BTC or close to it. Now that my month break is over, I’m focusing on SO, OTL and OTS. Yesterday I did a few sets with kegels and reverse kegels ala DLD’s Blaster routine.
This gave me a hell of a workout - especially OTS. The friction of the strap over my shoulder allows some adjustment of tension by leaning forward and backward to increase/decrease the pull at appropriate times. Ease up a bit during the kegel and increase tension when reverse kegeling.
I don’t know if this workout was so gruelling because these are new angles for me, or if kegels are generally more effective in these positions. I had done kegels/reverse kegels in the past when BTC, and I felt them working the ligs, but not nearly to the degree as OTL and OTS. Oddly, I don’t feel any effect when hanging SO.
From most stressful to least, for me:
4) SO (no extra stress)
Has anyone else tried this? What angles do you feel the most effect?
