L-Sit Progression on Floor for Intermediate Athletes and Festivus Feats of Strength
Video by Michele Vieux
This progression toward a L-Sit is great to use for those of you who aren’t quite strong enough to hold yourself up on parallettes and even for those who don’t have parallettes handy. It can be incorporated into your gymnastics-based warm-up, workout in place of L-Sits or hollow holds, TV watching and travel workouts to help you strengthen your lower abs and hip flexors while fine-tuning your body control.
To perform this movement:
1) Sit with your legs stretched out in front of you and your hands placed next to your pockets.
