Lots of L’s

floor+L-sit[1]I had a lot of L-sits in today’s workout although none of them were very good.  I can’t lock my legs straight or keep them parallel to the floor very well.  I would describe them as “droopy”.  Although the L-sit looks like an all ab exercise, once you try them you will realize the tremendous strain they put on your triceps as well.    I hope to keep working the L’s to get them into respectable territory both in form and duration.

I also did some frog stands and elbow levers.  The elbow levers have a tendency to make me nauseous.  If I don’t get the elbows placed just right they wind up applying pressure to my lower abdomen instead of my hip bones which creates an urge to throw up.  It’s not a pleasant sensation.
