Pressing against the bar (ront fever)

I want to know what exercise I can do to strengthen the motion where you're pressing against the bar if you were kipping into a front lever. Where you arms are straight and you squeeze your lats and upper back. The only thing I can think of that replicates that motion is working with bands and just pulling down on them to the sides of your hips with straight arms.

Re: Pressing against the bar (ront fever)

Gymnasts often use Total Gyms for light Rings training. They can be useful for teaching skills like inlocates/dislocates which turn into front and back giants.

Besides bands, you can use dumbbells.

Or just learn a front lever by training the progressions.
