    Hey again 🙂 I just wanted to thank Robby for helping me achieve the back lever it feels sick! Any tips on how to hold it longer? My max is 3s now. Thanks!

    Awesome man! The back lever is definitely a skill to be proud of. I’d say generally keep doing what you’ve been doing, but I’d suggest utilizing straddle back levers for your workouts. If you can hold a full back lever for 3 seconds then you can probably hold a straddle for a few seconds longer, which is substantial. It will allow you more time in the position so you can become more comfortable and efficient with it. Once you can do a straddle back lever for like 15 seconds then try going back to the full back lever more regularly. I don’t know your amenities but I recommend getting a video of yourself or check a mirror because you want to make sure that you are indeed level and that your back isn’t arched.

    Alright I’ll work on my straddles more. I mainly have to thrust my legs out from a tuck back lever position to get into the full back lever though. I actually have taken a video and I realised my back was arched. I’ll work on it though. Thanks again!

    I recommend starting from an inverted hang with your body aligned properly and then lower into the position, rather than lowering to a tuck and then extending your legs.
