How To Elbow Lever – Intermediate Calisthenics

We like to make training fun and always keep you moving forward, in your quest to redefine your impossible. Which is why we wanted to give you this elbow lever as a little ‘test’ and progression on from the frogstand.

It’s a great hand balancing variation that has your weight spread horizontally rather than vertically like in a handstand, so the balance aspect it much easier. It’s a great step for beginners to take towards an intermediates level.
