Warming up is a preparatory phase that most athletes do, or should.  Don’t skip this,  warming up is actually one of the most efficient ways to ensure we avoid injuring ourselves (which can in itself prove a large set back for our training goals).

What if it were possible to achieve the core and abdominal strength of a world class gymnast. Well guess what – it is possible to do it if you master the L-Sit.

  • With bent knees. You can start with this version if you feel you are lacking the strength or hamstring flexibility to do the movement with straight legs.
  • With straight legs. Once you are comfortable doing the L-sit with your knees bent, try the straight leg version. The farther your legs are from your body, the tougher it is.

There you have it. There are now no excuses not to build yourself a brick breaking set of abs.
