Do you mean a flexed arm bar hang? Cool, I haven't done those since high school. :) I'd be curious to know what I could do these days, those are tough.

No I think I mean a normal fully extended arm bar hang (assuming flexed arm means you hold yourself sort of halfway up a pull up)...I'm just rubbish at them. :wink:
