L-Seats Are an Amazing yet Extremely Challenging Way to Strengthen the Core
The L-Sit is the source of basic exercises and requires a combination of strength, flexibility and control in your arms, shoulders, abs, back, and legs. They are cool and need some tweaking, but they are so good for you.
L-squats are performed by pushing oneself off the floor or resting on parallel bars, rings, or even two chairs. In L-sitting on the floor, you have to work very hard to push off the floor high enough and then contract your muscles to support your body.
It all starts with the fact that you learn how to comfortably shape this L-shape from the floor and hold it for a long time. You will find that even these “lighter” options will be difficult if you are not used to contracting your arms, shoulders, hip flexors, and quads as hard. In fact, seizures can occur and this is normal. Antranik recommends stretching the hip flexors after each workout.
Keep working on the five sequences of exercises that Antranik shows you from the link below, but don’t expect instant miracles. It took Antranik four months to hold the L-Sit for two seconds.
