Beast Skills - Tutorials - StumbleUpon The elbow lever is a position where the body is held up horizontal to the ground. But unlike the planche (where there is NO support along the length of the body), the elbow lever uses one’s elbows as a resting and balancing point for the body. This makes the skill much easier than a planche. An elbow lever - It’s a fairly simple skill really.
