Mark, it is a really difficult transition. I don't think the problem is your upper body, the main reason I fail on either the planche progressions or lever progressions is a lack of sufficient trunk strength. With the arms straight you should be able to hold yourself up using mostly your bones. The best way I can think of to progress is to do like the article says and go for 60 seconds air time even if that means holding for 1 second at a time, and use L-sits and other gymnastic ab-strength excersises.
