Amazing method!

If you do something wrong in the first resistance band exercise, your balls will hurt!

Do the same principles apply also for the front lever?

The bands are amazing I wish I started out using em in the beginning

These two exercises were the last I needed before doing the back lever. Thank you for helping me break my plateau!

Hello! I have one question - why you stopped your planche progression? You could 13 sec straddle, i think that enough to start trying full planche, isn't it?

How do I train skills and for more reps in all my main exercises at once?

Author — Monju Inc.


I do this with a dip belt and resistance bands where the carabiners loop into the band. Sort of similar to what gymnasts call a dream machine or 50/50 or.. pulley system. Idea is the same with Daniel's. PTSD of getting my balls hurt made me switch to this.




Hey Daniel, great video!

I was wondering if you could answer a small question I had. I can hold the back lever with a pronated grip. But everytime I attempt it, I get a sharp pain on the back of my elbow and front of the bicep. Is there any strengthning exercise you could suggest please?

As always, videos are brilliant <3

Great video Daniel. Are there some anatomical advantages that some have for back lever? I have never found it anywhere near as difficult as so many seem to say it is. I'm 54, 180 cm and 82 kg and my back lever is pretty solid. I never really went through the entire progression, just lots of skin the cats and I was pretty much there. I never trained specifically for it.

Great video, as always!
Is it recommended to start with the front or the back lever? Or does it really matter?

Author — A Blind Lawyer


Great video as usual.
I was wondering if you could make a similar video giving us ways to use the band for the front lever.

Hi! Great video!!!
In your old progressions video for the back lever you recommend Shoulder dislocates to start... However I would dislocate my shoulder (for realsies!) if do that, because of an old injury (Recurrent anterior dislocation due to trauma).
I've been training my strength and shoulder stability lately. Do you think it would be safe for me to train for the back lever at some point (sooner or later)???
