It’s a tough one! Brett recommends working on it from the floor and then trying with a single strand, depending on your base strength of the hinge at the shoulder and the grip power for a single arm hang. Being able to compress the knees to the chest as the chest moves away from the pole with the hinge at the shoulder are the two big strength requirements to finding this particular pathway. The chest moving away from the pole leaves room for the leg to thread through. If you have a solid compression for the tuck, you still need the chest away from the pole. If you have the power in the shoulder to move the chest from the pole, the leg still has to be able to compress to where the chest is. Hope this helps, happy training!
