one arm hang • for time

No skill and no technique needed and hardly any risk to try. One arm hang is one of those things one can either do or can’t do.

How long can you hang from the bar with one arm only?

You need to log in at this point, content bellow, like the standards will then be individualized to your age, height, weight, etc.

rules

  1. You need to test your weaker arm. As the saying goes, you are only as strong as your weakest link, so let’s check how your weaker side does.

  2. No use of chalk is allowed, there is no such thing as a slippery bar, there is only lack of grip strength. Notice also I specifically said, hang from the bar.

  3. There is no buts about chalk use. If someone is set to sabotage your test by putting a thick layer of oil grease on the bar, kindly wipe the grease off …or if there is some chalk on the bar, grease it a little, then apply your natural grip strength to the bar.

  4. Just for fun try also the stronger arm even though your result doesn’t count toward completing of the standard.

You will now be able to view equality as you’ve never seen it before. Even your own left–right side are not and never will be completely equal. Not being equally in balance is not the issue, rather the issue is, if your left–right side — arms in this case but applies to other body parts as well — are hugely out of balance, that's something you should be worried about. To be strong and healthy you need to create and maintain good balance.

Everyone should be able to hold at least close to a minute. This is nothing extreme and more than a reasonable benchmark to consider as a bare minimum from a human (hence Homo sapiens) with basic functional abilities, and if not, why not, and why not better your self by setting a higher (as proposed) standard to aim for.
