Looks good man, you clearly put a lot of thought into this. The main thing I would say is that it may be difficult to keep up with it for more than a few weeks due to the complexity of the programming. Also I would consider front and back levers to be more strength based and less technique based so I don’t know if you would qualify that as skill work. As for the idea of having a day dedicated to skill work, it would probably be more beneficial to do shorter skill training sessions more frequently, rather than one longer session once a week. I sometimes practice handstands when I get gas, or you can practice during commercial breaks when watching TV. But it is good to set aside a bit more time for that kind of thing. For the sake of argument let’s say you want to do 1 hour of skill training a week. I think you would get better results from practicing for 15 minutes a day after each of your regular workouts (or whenever you want) for 4 days a week rather than 1 hour 1 day a week. Plus that way you’d get another day off. I would also recommend doing bridges more than once a week; bridging exercises are awesome to do anytime; warm up or cool down for a workout, after you wake up, before you go to bed, whenever your back feels stiff at work, whenever! Hell you can just hold a 5 minute bridge and call it a workout on a day you’re feeling lazy!

Besides that though it looks like you’ve done a good job covering your bases.
