I'm not sure my bicep tendon is up for meeting Eugene's Pullup challenge.
So I figured I'd offer up a birthday present of my own for him.
90 second L-sit challenge for Nov 27, 2005.
That means that on Eugene's birthday there will be a lot of pullups and L-sits being done.
I'm at 59 seconds as of today. 90 seems very, very far off.
90 is twice my age (44) plus 2.
Sam is meeting his own version of the challenge, 2x his age (he'll be 9) plus 2, for 20 seconds.
So - kids under 12, 20 seconds.
Kids over 12 (that's the rest of us) 90 seconds.
Who's in?

JK

Well you all had to go and do it. I think my current best is about 15 seconds followed by several days laying on the couch with ice pack on my abs. But I like Eugene so now I guess I'm in for this as well. Of course if we are doubling my age we will have to use a sun dial to time.

If we are doubling our age, I only have to do 88 seconds to complete this one. I think I will still go with the 90. What is two seconds between friends?

As with Eugene's pullup challenge, the formula was just for fun and explanation.

The explicit challenge:
For humans over 12 years old, 90 second L-sit on Nov 27, 2005
For humans 12 years old and under, 20 second L-sit on Nov 27, 2005

So shall it be written. So shall it be done.

I'm up for both. Pull-ups and L-sits are both something I love doing and wouldn't mind having a goal to push me...But I'm still with Jeff, I couldn't get up to pee last night after doing the L-pull-up WOD from a few days ago, heh.

I'm in for both as well. Are we talking a specific type of L sit (hanging, supported on paralettes, plain ol' hands on floor...) or is that up to individual 'gift giver'?


So far I'm at 52 seconds for a hanging L sit and 38 kipping pull-ups.

Well, I didn't start this challenge so maybe I don't have a say but I would figure floor, paralletes, or rings and not hanging cause hanging L-sits just don't come up much.

Look the dude is turning 50, not 90; so, can I go for 50 seconds??
I'm with slacker Jeff on my current PR and that's with knees bent for 10 of the 15 seconds!
So, I'm in for a 50 second L-sit. By the end of summer, we'll see about the 90.

I figure if I stay firmly planted in OC I can get away with the "slacker" comments with Jeff!:uhoh:

I know I will end up and Brand X one day and rue the day I ever wrote "slacker" about them in an absolutely kidding manner. I mean really, it was in jest; I kid, I'm a kidder. It's what people like me do. Humor. Fun.

I need to get my L-sit times up too, so this sounds pretty good.

Doing them on the floor is probably the best test, as you can't cheat with leg angle. They are either parallel to the floor or touching it; so all you have to worry about is keeping the legs straight.
