When the WOD calls for sit-ups, what type are ya'll doing?
-glute-ham?
-L-hold?
-Ab Mat?
-leg raise?

I want to improve my L-hold, but then there won't be any reps for a WOD score.

I've been doing regular sit-ups, nothing holding feet, glute-ham, and leg raises.

Jon- do a variety of movements if you have the opportunity. If you substitute something and still want to keep track of progress (like with L-holds) just keep track of the time held.

Thanks Robb. Just out of curiosity. Are you doing L-Holds, if so, what time are you up to?

I do them but I have not timed them as of yet. I just do them at random times and never really wold them to a point of fatigue. In one of the CFjournals I think coach had a three minute hold as something to shoot for. I am a LOOOOONG way off of that!

Just curious, when you mean "L-Hold" is that like the gymnastic move: Upper body perpendicular to the floor, legs straingt in front with hands on floor supporting the body off the ground?

I tried the L-hold after one of the WOD and could only hold the position for 20 seconds. Anyone that could hold that position for 3 minutes has amazing muscular endurance. I'll keep trying.

Don - I know what you mean about the 3 minute L-hold. It seems unreachable. I'm at 25 seconds now. We'll have add 15 seconds a month if we want to hit 3 minutes by the end of the year.

Just made my parallettes out of PVC pipe. Very sturdy. No more SportsMart crap!

Jon-keep us posted on that goal of 3 minutes on the L-hold. Just wondering what exercises are you doing on the parallettes? L-hold,handstand P/U?

Don - I'm just doing L-holds at this point. I haven't attempted a handstand push-up. I haven't even started doing a headstand to start, but I will soon. Are you doing other exercises on the parallettes?
