I was reading something the other day and it claimed that less than 95% of the population can "hang" for more than 45 seconds.
A "hang" was defined as basically being in a pull up position (hands facing away from face) and simply hanging there for as long as possible.
Now we're all pretty healthy (comparatively to the general population) around here, so get up try it and post your time...
Lets see how hard it really is... Apparently it is awesome for forearm strength.
Are you allowed to shift your grip once you start?
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

Did you mean to say less than 5% can hang for more than 45 seconds?
In HS gym class they used to test us for how long you could hold yourself at the top of a pullup, that was tough.

It's a lot harder than I thought, At 1:10 I just couldn't hold on any more... Defcon, I'm blaming my bulk too
