L-sit is a classic and great isometric exercise that engages the entire body, mostly emphasizing on the abs, and also affecting muscle groups such as forearms, triceps, quads, and hip flexors.
- Sit on the floor with your feet together and stretched outwards and back straight, like your body is making a capital ‘L’.
- Now place both hands on the floor just next to your hips.
- Do a push up in this position to the extent that your butt is off the floor, but the heels still touching the ground.
- Now raise your heels off the ground and move your hips behind your hands.
- Hold this position for a sometime and then descend.
- Chair L-Sit – With the regular L-sit position, bend your knees at a right angle. The end position will look like you are sitting on an invisible chair.
- Tuck L-Sit – This is similar to Chair L-sit, only the difference is that your knees are tucked close to your chest instead being parallel to the ground.
- One-Leg Straight L-Sit – This one is similar to tuck L-sit, the difference is one leg is extended straight out, while the other remains tucked in.
