This exercise is a great warmdown after your workout. It will help decompress the spine and stretch worked muscles, which will speed recovery. Best of all, it’s simple and relatively easy to do.
1. Step up to or jump up to a pullup bar so that your are hanging with your hands about shoulder width apart. You can use a palm away or palm toward you grip. The palm away seems to give better stretching results.
2. Relax your body as you hang straight down, arms extended.
3. Hang about 10-15 seconds then, drop to the floor, relax and then, jump back onto the bar for the next repetition.
Generally 3-4 reps is all that is needed for the warmdown.
