I know all the various progressions from beastskills, but he doesn't really discuss volume. How much volume should I be shooting for per week?
Definitely not a doable skill in 2 months even if you're at adv tuck. Back lever, possibly, but front lever tends to be a skill that takes at least 4-6 months or more from adv tuck if you're small gymnast size but longer again depending on anthropometry, height/weight, etc.

Check out some of the loading parameters per workout.. generally you can work on it like most other exercises at 3x a week
