Hello
I bet with my friend that in a month i could hang in a bar for 3min. at the moment the longest i can hang is 2min, but sometimes i can only do it for 1:30 or so.
Do any of you have an idea what i could do to maximize my time hanging. I am 173cm, weight is 62,5 and my body fat is 11,5%. Do i need to get rid of more body fat? or do i just need to bulk up some muscles? any idea would be greatly appreciated

Do it 5 times a day 3 days in a row. Then rest for 2 days.

Repeat. You'll me able to do it easily by a month.

Screw 3 minutes! Train for 6! I think 6 is the world record, and someone from MadRock got it.

These type of threads always crack me up because regardless of what the question is, the answer is always the same. The best way to get better at any task is to practice the task you want to get better at.

From what I understand, you're going to be limited more by your tendons than your muscles for hanging, and you're not going to develop them in a month.

Hopefully you didn't bet too much. If you did, I think your best bet is to lose a bunch of weight. And then to stop making stupid bets.
