Hey Attila, thanks so much for posting that book. I have been training with some guys out of phoenix who use a hanging isometric as part of their program. It has always boggled my mind as to what it did but that book described at least one theory behind it.  

Given that my shoulder is jacked right now, I’m now going to give it a go and see if there is improvement.
What Kaitlin says is true and what is missing from the book is a discussion on proper body position or posture during the hang. However, I also think that if you do the hang enough, you’ll eventually mobilize your shoulders to the point at which proper posture is achievable at full hang.
