Once reserved for bodybuilders, the “dead hang” is now a power move for women to strengthen your upper back, which helps support the weight of your breasts. The move improves posture, lowers the risk of back injury by decompressing your spine, and stretches your shoulders to ease pain, says chiropractor
Eric Cobb. If you have shoulder problems, he suggests to check with your doctor before trying it.
To get started: Grab onto a pull-up bar or monkey bars at the outdoors gym. Work up to a full relaxed hang by first using a box under your feet to support your weight.
