Scapula Pull Up on Rings

Chin Up on Rings

Band Assisted Advanced Tuck Front Lever Row - Rings

Band Assisted Front Lever Reps - Advanced Tuck
Keep your back straight and scapula depressed & retracted throughout the entire drill. Lower slowly until your back is parallel to the floor, squeeze for a moment before pulling back up all the way to your starting position in each rep.
To minimize the risk of injuries your neck must remain in a neutral position. In between reps look behind you. In your front lever look towards the ceiling.
Keep your elbows fully locked at all times. This is a straight arm drill. Train goal specific!
Leaning Face Pull on Rings
Walk your feet in so your upper body leans towards the back. The more lean the harder this exercise becomes. Make sure to stay clean. Always put form first!
Move slowly at a constant speed and stay in control at all times. Squeeze for a moment on top of the movement. Do not use momentum! Instead use strength from start to finish. Make sure to have constant tension in the straps.
Face Pulls are an excellent tool to create external rotation strength for well balanced shoulders to even out the pushing work done during calisthenics training and forward hinged posture due to a common modern lifestyle. Take these serious, focus and keep intensity and form quality high. You will thank me later!
