L-Iron cross, planche (sp). Routine, as best as I could remember (1983) was straight arm pull to invert, kip to L lower to L-cross, lower to invert, double dislocate to straight arm handstand, reverse giant to handstand, reverse giant to back uprise to planche (hold hold), push rings forward, front giant front giant to pike double. I'm sure there was other stuff in there but I don't exactly remember. I was pretty tall and heavy for rings (600/185, very low BF levels) so the strength moves weren't as pretty as they should have been (cross was a little high, planche was not perfect form). My size really killed my hands and I ripped almost weekly. Back in the day we didn't have foam pits so dismounts were a little less daring (we'd work them on the tramp, and then go for it with a thick foam mat, fall on your head, break your neck). I tried a foam pit in college and was working on a half in half out, with no fear of injury. . .great inovation.
