That's what I meant... but if there's no strong branches.. eh.

Also, since you just told me now that it's for beginners. Try to find something low that people can hold onto and do modified inverted rows. I have done them before while hanging onto table tops when I can't find a place to do pullups. Towels could work, but I don't think a lot of them would have the grip strength for that.

Handstands are also good for the trapezius area assuming they do them right. If they start planching them it becomes a predominantly shoulder exercise..

DB swings like David suggested are also pretty good. If you have some KBs you can teach them how do do both. Or you can make your own... there's a post around here showing how to make homemade ones.

Re: Need suggestions for back exercises

Steven, that was a cool article. Do you have specific experience with these exercises? If so, how advanced are you, and how long did your progression take? Thanks!

Re: Need suggestions for back exercises

Eh, I'm working on straddle planche and full front lever. I haven't really done any specific work on them in the past year or so but they have gotten a little better from my training. I wouldn't be able to give you a specific time.. but planche does take longer than front lever for obvious reasons (main muscles are larger).

Re: Need suggestions for back exercises

Steven... this is a bit of a tangent, but I've been wondering.

Front leverlanche::Back lever:??

Meaning, is there a move that leaves you horizontal and facing upward, with your arms behind you in support?

Re: Need suggestions for back exercises

Yeah, but it's probably impossible. It is what you're thinking though. Closest you'll get to it is probably something like a manna or maybe a victorian on rings.
