Not if you don't entirely "dead" hang. So don't let the shoulder entirely relax - at least pull yourself up "into" your shoulders. :thumleft:

I.e. Keep under tension and hang on your muscles , when you get tired and you just hang on your ligaments you will start to stretch ligaments and hurt them (safe dead hang = muscle must support you not ligaments)

Super for finger strength, you must warm up properly tho. Wk all finger positions. Some you may not be able to lift ur feet with, just take as much weight as u can. Try standing on a spring scale and holding tne dial steady. Duration: depends on what ur training for, bouldering: 2-4secs, sport: 4-8secs, trad: 8-10secs per contraction. The shorter and more intense the contraction the longer the rest u need in between reps. Hope that helps

Check out example wokouts for a more complete picture of what ur trying to achieve.
