I have all the CF issues.. but was there an article on progression to L-sits? I swear there is, but i've searched them all and can't find it. Unless i'm thinking of the one page in issue 42.. i swear there was another one with more progressions.. does anyone know??

Thanks!

Nikki,

Not sure of the issue, but here are the progressions I know of using parallettes:

1. leg tuck with knees held up to chest
2. one leg tuck with other leg extended into L
3. Same as 2, but now change from leg to leg while holding the position
4. L sits

When you move to the L sits you may want to elevate the parallettes so that you legs can drop below 90degrees.

You can also practice by hanging from a pull up bar and pulling your legs up in the various tuck and L positions.

I'm just rhyming these off from memory, but haven't gone through the progressions myself. Probably should get on that sooner than later.

Good luck.

I'm using all these, plus "V sits" - like an L-sit but with the legs held much higher up so that the body's in a V-shape.

Since starting the V-sits I've seen much better progression towards the L.

You can also do V-sits (like L-sits but with the legs higher so body's in a 'V').

I've had good results with these.

Is it possible that V-sits can have an adverse impact on short-term memory?

There's an L-sit progression in a recent CFJ. One of the last 4. I forget specifically which (even though I wrote it) and I don't have them with me right now.

Hmmm, a database of journal topics anyone? This would be a nice feature.

Cole-

Nice one.



The FAQs have added some pretty good descriptions to the Journals (before that it was harder to find articles). A searchable database would be even better.
