Core Strength Tip of The Week: Front Lever Sequence

Dustin Myers


The Front Lever is one of the most challenging bodyweight positions known to man.  Since most lifters - including myself - will have trouble achieving this gymnastic feet of strength, it’s necessary to build up to it.  Similar to the Dragon Flag, the best way to work towards mastery of the Front Lever is to control the eccentric lowering of the position. 

Grasp a bar with a medium overhand grip and raise your legs to the bar with as little of a hinge at the hips as possible.  Once you are upside down, slowly lower your body, maintaining hip extension.  Attempt 3 reps of a 5-6 second negative.
