    2-3 months progressions until i hit full fl iirc.
    was pretty easy to me, but i weight like 62kg.
    i was doing regular normie progressions, in addition to intensive lat training.
    now i'm focused on fl pullups and this shit is way harder.

    Best practice for front lever is once your pulls are strong enough just lose weight. You should aim for less than height minus 100 for sure, ie if you're 170cm aim for 65kg or so.

    I'm not interested in gymnastic exercises, I feel like they're terrible for the shoulders
    Besides, it looks kind of moronic and it doesn't look like it gives you any benefits
    What's the point of doing a front lever besides being able to do a front lever?
    I don't squat to do squats, I squat for leg strength and power
    I don't do curls to do curls, I do curls to grow my biceps
    But a front lever? pointless, it's the fitness equivalent of academic mental masturbation

        okay, i guess impressing girls is a valid argument
        i still think it's stupid, but i can't argue with proper logic

        Well moron, if you can do a front lever, then you’re strong enough and possess enough body control to do a front lever. Calling it masturbation would imply there’s no strength or productivity related to it when clearly there is because some people can do it, while you are too weak to do it.

        doing a front lever is 80% technique (pointless masturbatory waste of time), 5% strength, 15% being a manlet
        plenty of people who have the strength to do them, can't
        and plenty of people who are considerably stronger than a manlet doing a front lever, also can't

          >technique
          Lmao no, there’s no more technique to this than there is to any barbell lift, in fact, I’d argue there’s less. The reason why it feels so hard for you is because you lack strength. I don’t practice this it all, yet when I’ve tried I’ve been able to do it because a possess the requisite upper back and core strength
          >people who are considerably stronger than a manlet doing a front lever, also can't
          I’m not a manlet, though I agree it is easier for people who are. But yes, if you’ve prioritized being a bloated powershitter you may struggle. Different goals for different people. I don’t prioritize running but I can certainly recognize how impressive it is when some runs a 15 minute 5k. Not everyone has the same priorities as you. Some people like being able to move their own body and not wheezing trying to climb stairs.

      you are embarrassingly moronic. front lever has nothing to do with shoulders, maybe you confuse it with the planche.
      >it doesn't look like it gives you any benefits
      What's the point of doing a front lever besides being able to do a front lever?
      it's a full upper back exercise. going from dead hang to fl and the eccentric is a much better version of the cable pullover. and when you are able to do fl pullups which are equivalent to rows, you don't need anything other than a bar for a complete upper back training.

      "the technique" is something you learn in an hour, it's not a fricking maltese cross you moron. it is a test of relative strength, though most people who lift have weak scapula and will fail.

        what does relative strength even mean?
        the scapula is a bone, it doesn't have any strength other than its structural strength
        the only muscle that the fl tests is the teres major (also called the climbing muscles, which is why climbers can do front levers with shitty form without too much trouble)
        it is true that they're usually underdeveloped, but you might as well target them specifically, it's way more efficient and you don't have to waste time working on your form

            >strength in relation to weight - pullup, pushup
            calf raise with bent knee, unilateral, on slight elevation, never losing tension, pumping that gastrocnemius
            lunge
            squat (air, pvc pipe overhead with straight thoracic and set scapula)
            all ab static holds - raise legs a tad wirh collapsed lumbar spine and relaxed glutes, u can if u can even throw ur arms above ur head, pushup position plank with raised leg, or moar dynamic going from pushup to plank - all relative strenght
            bridges - relative strenght
            and if u divide used for resistanceweight by weight of subject doing the thing and compare that u're judging relative strenght, pound for pound they call it

    Instead of practicing for something so useless, why don’t you lift some weights or read a book?
    >inb4 I-its fun
    It’s not, you’re an easily impressed gay who thinks learning a front lever will make you popular with girls like that Instagram guy

    Took me 2 years to get to nowhere, until I realized that I had an "uneven body" (my left shoulder hangs lower than my right) and it was inhibiting everything, even my regular lifting
    I realized the left side of my back was tight and cramped if I as much as flexed it and after I fixed it, I learned front lever in 3 months of irregular practice. Progress was fast too. I became better every week

    trying to learn frontlever. drop me some progressions my homies

  7. 2 weeks ago

    I can. Took over a year of half assed training. Started doing progressions but felt like I was going nowhere and wasting a lot of time I should spend in proper training, so I just moved to attempting it twice before each workout during warmup until I pulled it off. Eventually I pulled it off.
    It's just something to distract myself with, tho. The real goal is one arm pull up.

    I cant do any calisthenics shit. I can do 15 pullups with 1pl8 added but i cant even do a single muscle up. And i cant do any of these lever things, all i go is leg raises for abs and those kneeling rope crunches. I think it might be harder for me to do calisthenics cause i'm a big guy (195cm, 90kg) but that may be just cope. Though every guy i see irl doing these complex calisthenic things is 175cm and under.

      you will be able to do muscle ups, you just need to train high pullups (to the chest) first.
      about fl: it's close to impossible to big guys to do a full fl. but you will be able to do a one legged version.

      You should be able to do muscle ups. Levers, human flags and shit should be way hard though. I wouldn't waste my time if I were you, it's better to have more realistic goals.

        i kinda like it - i do/try doing it hanging off ceiling door frame but not even one leg straight yet , it's not my abs, i just chose not to train lats until they bow to my lat length expectations:

        also mine:

        isn't there a human flag regression that's fairly easy where you tuck your elbows or some shit? I saw a kid do it the other day at the park but israelitegling flag regression doesn't turn up anything close to it

      muscleups are mostly technique, they become extremely easy once you get used to them
