No, they are not. Progressions shortening or lengthening the leverages on the body are more than optimal.

What about inverted cross, cross, maltese or victorian? It's hard to shorten the leverage on the body in those cases? Do you shorten the length of the arms in those cases, or are restistance bands/spotting optimal?

For those special spotted drills tend to be more effective.

 For Invert cross, you cannot change the body position.

 

 Bands are just a tool to self spot, really. With planche, victorian and maltese you can suppoet on the elbow or forearm. Same as cross
