The L-Sit is one of the best bang-for-your-buck exercises for building strength and control throughout your body. Here, GMB Trainer Eduardo Orihuela (from All-Around Fitness in Chicago) takes you through a simple and quick tutorial on the main points to look out for in the L-Sit. See our detailed tutorial here: https://s.gmb.io/l-sit Here are the main points: 1. Tall posture: Make sure that your shoulders are pulled down away from your ears. 2. Elbow pits forward: This might cramp up your triceps, but fight for this as it will strengthen your arms and help you with straight arm work. 3. Lift knees to chest: This is where the balance and core really lights up. Make sure you’re able to keep steps 1-3 as you lift feet from floor. If you need to, just keep your toes on the floor for now. 4. Gradually extend and straighten: Make sure you’re able to keep steps 1-3 as you extend your legs. If you/re not at this level yet, no problem! This takes time, and you can speed up your progress by improving your compression strength and hamstring flexibility.
