rings – front lever

Brad Johnson starts at the beginning and works his way up to one of the most challenging strength positions on rings.

I recall how many of the best gymnasts in the world had trouble holding a front lever when it was included in the (now defunct) Olympic compulsory routines.

Good article. The only addition I have is use a particularly demanding spotter. A spotter who reduces the resistance just enough to keep you in the correct position.
