Iron cross help?

Recommended Posts

Rh2015

I am a 32year old male. I have been training for the iron cross for the last 8 months. I feel like I am making progress, but I am wondering if anybody has any advise or exercises that may help me achieve my goal of the iron cross. I am very strong for my 150 pound stature. Open for any suggestions!

It is also very important to be aware of the necessary prerequisites before XR support work.
- Mastering the seven fundamental GST exercises (Front Lever, Straddle Planche, Side Lever, Manna, Single Leg Squat, Hollow Back Press, Rope Climbing)
- Having the required mobility paired with these exercises
- Having a solid freestanding handstand

Although I agree that it is good to have mastered F4 before doing rings support I do not believe that to be the only way. Having a solid ropeclimb is however a very good idea, and in terms of iron cross a straddle planche, rings handstand, front lever and back lever would be good to have.

good tips above.

Do not premature training iron cross, you have only one pair of biceps.

Without video or any idea of what progression you are attempting we are all shooting in the dark. Which is pretty much a waste of time.

Fill in the blanks, man.
