Re: My L-seat is killing me!
Cramps will go away as you do them more.
One way to help increase active flexibility and work towards L/V sit is to do a V-up on the floor (if you can or at least get as far as you can) and then plant your hands on the floor at about a 45 degree angle in front of you. Next, contract your abs and hip flexors as hard as you can and hold for as long as you can. It gives the feeling of holding an L or V position without having to hold yourself up.
