“To support your whole body on your hands is no mean feat, and it takes a lot of strength and coordination to sit strong in shape.

Seated Pike

To do an L Sit you need to start in a piked (legs straight out in front of you) seated position on the floor.

Hand Placement

Place your hands on the floor by your hips and straighten your arms – It’s important to keep them locked out.

Engage your Shoulders, Lift your Bum

Keeping your arms locked, lift your bum off the floor with your shoulders by driving your hands into the floor.

L Sit WODs – Bring your Legs Up

With your shoulders supporting your torso, tighten your core to lift your feet up off the ground. Keep your legs straight and point your toes to tighten up your legs.

L Sit WODs – Hip Positioning

When you are up, try to bring your hips through your arms, slightly in front of your hands, to keep your feet up off the ground.”
