No special equipment. Just a bar to hang from – that’s all we’ll be using.
And we’ll be doing – THE ONE-ARM HANG! (quick note before you read on – the Free MusleHack Android app was just released! Go to the Play store and search for musclehack. Track your workouts and get my free tips).
Your strength is measured by how long you can hang. Here are the ways to measure your success:
- 10-second hang
- 30-second hang
- 60-second hang
- 90-second hang
It would be hard for me to imagine that any of you using my THT training (click here to download the training manual and free app) could not do a one-arm hang for at least 10-seconds. You should all be much stronger than that.
10 seconds or less – Not good. you should practise more by hanging with 2 arms. When you can get to 60 seconds, move on to testing with one arm.
30 seconds – Congrats! Those who can perform a one-arm hang for 30 seconds have above average grip strength
60 seconds – A fantastic result and you have far above average grip strength. You are one of the few! If you got this on your first attempt, you’ve probably been training for a long time!
90 seconds or more – Superior, top 1% elite grip strength. If you don’t get this, don’t worry. Most people don’t. But you can get there with practice!
Perform the test with your stronger arm and do an adequate warm-up (especially around the rotator cuff) before attempting. Let me know your score! When I get someone to film me, I’ll make a video of mine and get it up on facebook. Share this with friends on social media to see how they perform 🙂
NOTE: You can increase the speed at which you build strength and muscle by jacking up your levels of the BIG 3 anabolic hormones completely naturally (testosterone, growth hormone and insulin). I’ll tell you how to do it in my free guide.

P.S. I know that putting together a diet for mass gains or getting shredded abs can be a pain in the butt, especially if you are new to this – that’s why I offer a service where I will do all the tough ground work for you.
You probably don’t know how many calories you need, or how many grams of protein, carbs or fat you need (based on your personal stats)…BUT I DO. Then I can take these numbers and create an exact meal plan for you to hit those numbers spot on! You’ll know what foods to eat and even when to eat them. All you have to do…is do it. No thinking involved. If you’d like me to take care of this for you, see the Get Me Shredded option on my Coaching Page here.
