The HUMAN FLAG is arguably the most visually impressive bodyweight feat of strength anyone’s ever come up with. Any time someone does a human flag, it inevitably attracts attention. I’ve seen many a jaw drop after showing this move to someone for the first time. It’s also the exercise that I get asked about more often than any other. In the Video below, I will show you how I learned preform the HUMAN FLAG and how you can build up enough strength to do it as well.
It takes considerable strength and lots of practice to do the human flag. You have to be ridiculously strong, but you also must work specifically towards this skill.
The first time I attempted the human flag, I didn’t come close to staying up for even a second I was nearly 30 goddamn years old and had been working out for almost half of my life. So please, do not feel bad if it takes you a wile to get this move down!
I consider the Human flag to be a full body exercise, but the dominate muscles involved are delts, lats, and obliques. You are going to need a good foundation of strength from exercises like pull-ups and handstand push-ups (or bench presses) to begin training the flag.
Your bottom arm is going to be pressing into the pole to support your outstretched body while your top arm will be pulling you up. At the same time, both your lats and delts on both sides must engage to accomplish this.
The extreme stabilization required for this move demands synchronicity between antagonist muscle groups. Once your foundation is solid with pull-ups and presses, you can get stronger through building up to the full human flag
Make sure to train both sides evenly.

(Some of people questioned if Michael’s pics are “real” because his tattoo is on the other arm in the 2ed pic. it is because he took the pic in the mirror. I don’t want to get into the “science” of that, but if I take a pic of my reflection, my tattoos with switch sides too. LMAO!)
