Back lever

A back lever is a static hold performed on the rings. A back lever is rated as an 'A' value skill on the Code of Points, a scale from A to F, with F being the most difficult.

A back lever is performed by lowering from an inverted hang until the gymnast's body is parallel to the ground.

Performing a back lever requires a high degree of strength in the chest and shoulders, a lot of core tension must be generated to stay horizontal.
