Vertical hanging- a must before your workout

What's vertical hanging? Basically vertical hanging is an act that enables gravity to help indirectly pull your arms and subtly stretch the ligaments in your shoulder. Vertical hanging doesn't only make your shoulders feel better (loose!) but also get primes your shoulders for your workout.

In order to perform vertical hanging, you simply lift your arms straight overhead and grab onto the handles of the pull up bar and then just let yourself hang for awhile. Perform this a few times and your shoulders will immediately loosen resulting in improved flexibility.

So remember, the next time you hit the gym, please incorporate vertical hanging as a warm-up activity.
