Movement: The goal of the front lever is to bring your body straight and parallel to the floor while raised from the rings with straight arms below you. To initiate the movement place your hips by the rings and your hands by your hips. It will be easier and safer if the rings are set to a height close to the floor. Now incline your weight forward until your center of gravity is above your hands and, contracting through your upper body and stabilizing in your back, core and shoulder blades, press up into the front lever.
Assists: Pulling the knees in toward the body will make the exercise easier.
Caution: Do not rush into the front lever. Make sure you have appropriate shoulder strength and stability before extending range of motion on this exercise, and work up to it over time.
