Included in this tutorial are 21 different hanging exercises for exploration of the shoulders and related tissues. 

The exercises in the program are numbered and named as below. Begin work on the passive hangs and active hangs simultaneously, however one arm work should not begin until you are reasonably competent at the second series.
square brackets [ ] indicate the prerequisites to begin work, do not attempt these exercises if you cannot do the prerequisites
round brackets ( ) give a rough guide for competence, however you may need more than this depending on your strength needs
