Gymnastics is all about leverage, so the progressions are based upon how long you make your body. All progressions will have straight arms and try to get the hips level with the shoulders. The progressions are as follows:

-round back/legs tucked into the body
-straight back/legs tucked into the body
-straight back/one leg extended
-straight back/both legs extended in a straddle or V
-straight back/straight legs (ie a legit front lever)

followed by…

Hang Power Snatch: 5×3 @135/95
Focus = Triple Extension
