Default Advanced Tuck Front Lever

How long a hold should you get before you start tinkering with the next progression? Is it necessary to get the full 60 seconds if you don't want to cheat yourself, or can you start playing around with tougher progressions sooner?

Also, how do you pull off progressing from the advanced tuck when you don't have access to a pull-up bar wide enough for you to straddle out at the top? I've thought of three ideas--

1) Going up in tuck, lowering with a straddle as wide as the apparatus permits you to.
2) Tucking one knee tight to the chest and extending the other leg ('half-lever?')
3) Keeping both knees bent but opening the hip progressively.

Does anyone have any experience with how well this methods work, or know better ones?
