Haha, I didn't even think about that Roger. I'll add it in if you don't mind. :-) I didn't really go into that much detail about conditioning the elbows though, but I can see how it does both as the lats are recruited a large amount in the back lever.

Yeah it's really interesting how the cross, back lever and maltese all really tie together. I've worked with several gymnasts who have worked crosses some, worked a ton of back lever stuff and suddently been able to do an Azarian roll without any specific work on the skill. It's so nice when that happens.

Haha, well I guess that means I think I'll have to do some hard back lever work then so I can do an azarian too! :-)

I concur with your points and stand corrected. You made some good points dude.
