The L Sit is a very difficult core exercise.  I mean it, it's really hard to do.  You need a lot of things working well for you if you want to be able to do it.  Things like:

  • Strong stomach muscles
  • Strong legs
  • Flexible hamstrings
  • Strongs wrists
  • Good sense of balance

In this way, you might consider the L Sit to be an example of a Keystone Ability.


Who doesn't want to be able to do a pullup?  They are awesome!  I class the pullup as a Keystone ability...If you can do them, it's an indicator that you can't be in that bad a shape!  But they are tough.  You need a good amount of strength.  And not just in your arms, where a lot of people think.  In fact, if you are thinking of the pullup as an arm move, you have already started off on the wrong foot.  Think of it as an upper half of the body move.

Hip mobility is important for all of us.  It helps us do everyday moves.  It helps us do athletic/sporting moves.  It can help protect against dodgy knees and backs and general aches and pains.  In short, it lets us move better, move more and move safer. So here is a quick and easy routine for almost anyone to improve their hip mobility.  There are only 4 stretches involved and it only takes 3 minutes, so you don't have any excuses (you can even do it in the advert breaks of X Factor!) So here goes...
