What are some effective guidlines for rotating planes of movement in a program. My concerns are rotating horizontal pulling + vertical pulling. As well as Dips+ horizontal pushing+ vertical pressing. Would rotating between horizontal and vertical every other workout provide sufficient strength gains?

Yes, it's basically what the GB Killroy70 program did. It rotated vertical, inverted, and horizontal pressing and pulling and added in a day of combined press/pull (MU).

In the event one is following a 3-day per week training schedule, how would that effect training? SKip the Muscle up day?

Also with training support holds, what should the goal be a hold? Train them like normal statics? I saw in stevens article that they could be placed with other pushing training however I was worried putting them before my lever training would put a lot of strain on my elbows

Well, you could just cut out the combined push/pull day like MU. I wondered about this as the Killroy program runs 4 days but my guys only go 3 days.

So either you cut out one day or you rotate 4 different days on a 3d/week schedule which gets dizzying to remember.

The support hold is just a static since it shouldn't move.

You can adjust volume with the lever and support training. For basic statics like support and L-sit, it shouldn't bother your elbows unless you work your planches with hands turned out or the straddle-L with hands turned out.

However, basic mastery of the ring support comes before back lever as far as your elbows are concerned. Same with a supinated german hang.

Thanks a lot Blair. I kinda just jumped into the training a year ago after discovering the beastskills website. My training has progressed a lot since getting the BtGB book, but support holds weren't something I ever traing exclusivley.

I would say permanently keep some form of horizontal rowing if you're not starting to train manna.

If you're going to rotate movements thoguh it's fine to do it with A/B workouts or whatever.... I prefer to do it after every cycle (generally 4-6 weeks or so.. with a deload).

It really depends a lot on your goals though. If you're going specific towards some goals then you likely won't want an A/B
