"Negative pullup" for cross sides

Here is an excersize I use for grip endurance when in cross sides or harness. It is designed to maximize the time I can hold a thight grip on my opponent in these situations.

I do two variations:

One is where I just hang as horizontally as possible for x amount of seconds. Try to start with 5 sets x 5 seconds twice a week, then add two seconds every week.

Other one is where I hang and I have a partner pull me down really, really light in the hips for 3 seconds where I resist, then help me up again. He pulls me down 3 times, 3 seconds each time. 5 sets twice a week.
