You know how I gave you a tip pertaining to your Front Lever training, so I decided it would be only fair if I give you a tip for the Back Lever as well. So here it is.

It’s a really simple exercise that will hit your back and although you might be surprised your abs as well. Just lying on your stomach with your legs in the air puts a great load on the abdominal muscles which I find great. Try the exercise, try holding the line of your body with your limbs in the air for 1 second before you lower them back down. This will make your training more effective. Do it for 3 sets, 8 repetitions at the end of your workout.

On this video I am illustrating how you can increase the difficulty by simply placing smaller part of your upper torso on the surface. The less you place the harder it will feel! And to assure you engage your back appropriately try moving your grip forward. This really will help you secure the position better.

I am not sure what one can replace the pommel horse with in a home environment but I reckon it’s possible. Just give me a hand think of something, try it and share with me!

**EDIT** So far what you guys have tried and said to be working for you as a replacement to the pommel horse:
-Washing Machine
-Coffee Table
-Desk Chair
-Swiss Ball

-Arthlete

P.S. I just love seeing that type of creativity. Keep on posting!
