How To Do L Sit Exercise?

How do you train for the L-sit? L-Sit Progressions: 6 Steps to Success

How long should you hold an L-sit? Aim to do three to five sets of L-sit holds to failure (aka hold it as long as you can), ideally timing yourself so you’ll know when you’re making progress. Eventually, you’ll want to work up to five 15-30 second L-sit holds.

Why is L-sit so difficult? L-Sits on the floor are pretty obvious, you are supported with your hands on the floor without any support from dipping bars or parallettes or yoga blocks or anything else. This is definitely the hardest form of L-Sit because of the required shoulder mobility, core strength and overall tension required.
