Dead Hang Assessment

The Dead Hang Assessment is meant to test grip, core, and isometric hanging stamina. Please watch the video to get a visual demonstration of how to perform the test. Below you will find a description of how to do so. You will be using a pull up bar for this assessment. You will grip both hands on the bar with your legs off the ground maintaining an active core and then hold this position as long as possible! The test is over when you can no longer hang onto the bar and need to return your feet to the ground. Letting the core get "lazy" and going into an arch position vs a hollow position. Prehab Goals & Normative Values: Elite: Greater than 1:30 minutes Extremely Good: 1:30-1:00 minutes Good: 30-45 seconds Take the assessment, write down your score, and track your progress throughout the program.
