Ya it's the same as sitting on the edge of your seat, which is the way most people do it for ligs before they discover the wonder of BTC!

I hang standing up when I want to swing the weights! Normally I swing about 7-10lbs. I get my feet alittle more than shoulder width, and swing between the legs(weights don't need to swing too high!).I do this about 5min. Then with the legs at the same width, I lean over and start the weights in a circular motion,I keep in a bent over position with hands on the knees when I do the circular routine.Try to get a rthyme going when you do the circle swing! First clockwise, then counter-clockwise for 5min each way. I do this at the end of my hanging routines, then I go off to the DLD blaster routine and intense stretches . The swinging is a good stretch , as the g-force adds alittle more force and stretch , then the weight on it's own! So be careful if you try this, and start light.

Lots of ways (positions) to hang weight. I even read of one guy laying on his weight bench hanging and doing crunches at the same time. Multi tasking hhHydromaxmmm maybe i'll try that.

The only few times I did hanging, I did so by sitting at the edge of my bed
I would do the same but with a chair. I also likes to walk around occasionally and swing the weight to get some better stretches in. I gained maybe .25" when I was hanging . It turned out to be a lot of work, more than I could dedicate. Good thing too because soon after this I came out with SRT.

For me it also became a lot of work and affected my dedication. But hanging can bring very quick gains but it's also stressful.
