    Smash'd the 👍🏽😊 I've got some questions about it, though... (1) legal position is vertical, not upside down? (OK, I thought of a back lever, but one would spin to vertical again, anyway; plus, if you can back lever 100s straight, you're already a champion, in my book...🏆🏆🏆); (2) is it a good idea to practice thumb/wrist strength? Because, in the end, if you think about it, you're carrying a lot of weight on those 2 thumbs alone; kind of the same as the other 8 fingers, combined...

    They have these things at all the county fairs near me. All the same...$20 for 20 seconds, 50 for 50, 100 for 100. But what you don’t see as the spectator is that the bar is actually rotating at an extremely slow speed. The rotating bar means the challenger has to constantly keep readjusting their grip while hanging, making it nearly impossible to hold on.

    I was able to do it with one of those bars that hangs on your door frame. That makes the bar only about 7 feet off the ground, and so I have to keep my legs bent up, in order to not be touching the ground. And it's also a padded bar. I'm guessing those two factors make it a lot lot easier lol. But also maybe it means that bending your legs behind you, or up in front of you, somehow makes it easier?

    Hey! I was already lying in my bad when I stumbled upon this video. When you mentioned that lean guys with no muscle wins often, thats when I decided to give this a try. I used your biceps technique and surprisingly I did it and it was actually not that hard! (the typing with my tired fingers is just as difficult). Im super lean guy who only do push ups and pullups and Im so happy I did it. I have no proof but Im just surprised I needed to share. Thanks for your content you inspire me man.

    Im assuming they wouldn't allow a mixed grip i.e. One hand over and one hand under grip but what about hook gripping the bar? I can hang on to way more deadlifting with a double overhand hook than a normal double over hand grip. Surely that would benefit a dead hang too.

    its easy for sure you try to make it a scam but just reverse each hand then you can do it... if both hands face the same way yes it is hard... with each hand opposite then the bar stays in place no problem....

    The ONE fitness (carnival?) challenge I can do! And I can't even do a push-up. And the reason for both is the same, I have very oddly jointed arms (and have done trapeze for many years). It's hard to explain, but with an underhand grip, my elbows connect and lock out my arms at about 110 degree angle, so I naturally hang in more of a Y-shape, so my weight actually counterbalances the rotation of my grip. (It's very close to the position blue long sleeve shirt guy is in at the end, but my elbows connect to one another so I stay locked like that without having to pull up at all). Aside from the forearms, I barely need to use anything else other than a bit of abs. But it REALLY hurts my joints afterwards. Not sure if this can help anyone else though. I've never met a single other person with the exact strange elbow joints, but there may be a way to "fake it."

    I would like to see if you and other GRlifesrs can do a 2 minute hang challenge using the same easy/cheap setup that I use at home. I built my own rotating bar to practice at home. It is a wood pole the same 2” diameter as 2 minute challenge at Knott’s Berry Farm Amusement Park, CA USA. It sits on top of my square pullup bar frame & has U-shaped muffler clamps bolted over square pullup frame on each side of wood pole on both ends to hold it in place, but still allows it to spin. I got the muffler clamps at an auto parts store and the pole from “Home Depot” home improvement store. I have noticed that all the GRlifesrs are doing the hang challenge on Skinny Bars where you can easily grip the bar & could keep the bar from rotating by holding your thumb with your finger.
