Movement: The goal of the back lever is to bring your body straight and parallel to the floor while suspended from the rings with straight arms behind you. To initiate the movement start from an inverted position on the rings and slowly lower your torso, legs and feet in a line behind you.
Assists: Pulling the knees in toward the body will make the exercise easier.
Caution: Do not rush into the back lever. Make sure you have appropriate shoulder mobility and strength before extending range of motion on this exercise, and work up to it over time.
