Dead Hang Challenge Rules


You need a camera that shows you hanging from a bar and your feet off the ground.


The dead hang movement starts with your hands holding the bar and your legs and feet hanging freely. The time stops when your hands leave the bar, and you fall to the ground.

Video Editing

The video must be a continuous shot. No cuts allowed. All footage must show the person hanging from a bar. Video playback must be at normal speed. We suggest you record at 24 frames per second (fps).

Video Content

In the video, you must speak your name while showing your face or use an on-screen title.


Your dead hang challenge video must be published as a public listing on YouTube.
