Jon, since I don't have a set of parallettes, I improvise at the gym. I line up(2) Reebok steps shoulder width or slightly greater distance awaw from each other, and with a pole in between the two. I do a handstand, use the pole in the middle for balance and place my hands on the steps. Then it's time for handstand pushups.

When I get into the handstand position I face away from the pole. The pole that I use is one of the support poles in the aerobics room.

Once you get the hang of the L-hold, try the V-hold. Same concept, just alot harder.

WOD for Friday calls for situps again.
The first message in this thread asked about what kinds of situps people do:
-Ab Mat?
-leg raise?
Can someone define the glute-ham and the ab mat? Are there any others that Coach means for us to do?

Janet -

The glute-ham sit-up is done on a hyperextension, face-up, laying flat with your legs straight.

The ab mat allows you to contract the abs from full extension to full flexion. A cheap alternative is to use a rolled-up towel.

I'm not sure about other sit-ups. I know Coach thinks highly of the L-hold. I'm up to 30 seconds and started at 10 seconds two months ago.
