Human Flag Progression Pt.4


In this series, Carl demonstrates the progressions to build up to a Human Flag, where the athlete is able to hold a horizontal side plank position while only holding on to a vertical post or object.

In this video, Carl shows how to find the appropriate hand placements to perform the Human Flag hold. This time, Carl repeats the Candlestick to Lever movement but instead of doing it on the ground, he does it on top of boxes or a bench.  This is so Carl can to make room to separate his hands, to find out the optimal placement for the posting arm (for stability) and pulling arm (for strength).  From there, repeat the Candlestick to Lever drill in that arm position as practice.
