The L sit. Part 4

Today its the last part of our racy 4 part guide to nailing the L sit. The ab exercise that spanks the bottom of all other ab exercises. Can you crunch? Can you do a twisty thing while squirming on the floor?  Who cares. My cat can do those moves and he died 3 years ago.
Almost everything is easy compared  to the L sit. Read what Greg Glassman, the Crossfit founder said about the l sit
So,  HOW TO DO IT
Building on parts 1, part 2 , part 3   push yourself up and stick both legs out. You can do it on a chair, or with  dumbbells when you are learning, but aspire to do it on the floor.
Voila
The L sit

Anyway:  learn more about life, how to get great abs, and how to learn and master a tonne of effective training methods at Crossfit London in our amazing Bethnal Green E2 gym. We have special gymnastic strength classes to help you learn cool stuff like this. See you there.

Start your adult gymnastics journey

Gymnastics is open to everyone. Even if you are 56 with poor shoulders,  our amazing adult gymnastic coaches can find a way for you to roll, flick, tuck and handspring.
Crossfit London runs a delightful  adult gymnastics tumbling  club in  East  London,  one tube stop from Liverpool street.
Based in Bethnal Green, 2 minutes from the tube, we specialise in delivering you the skills you want: If you are an adult with no, or little prior experience  we can,   given your application to our classes, get you to tumble.
You won’t win any competitions but you’ll find an awesome hobby.
But, here is our promises: at least once a year, you’ll land badly and tweak  an ankle or knee. It happens. Someone broke their ankle a few years ago .
The basics of this sport involve jumping high in the air and flipping over. The sport carries all the risks of , well,  jumping in the air and flipping over.
Of course, we have lots of drills involving  safe mats,  bouncy floors and instructor spotting.
But, like in the video above, eventually  the instructor stands back and goes” its all you” (not on your 1st day obviously).
What we are really saying is that if you are risk adverse, maybe look at yoga, or meditation!!
Check out our classes, and assume you need to start at level 1. There are no free trials, as our classes are full of people passionate about  gymnastics. You can buy a single session for £15. After that, there are carnets you can buy that bring the price to about £10 a session. This means at your lesson, you’ll be surrounded by people who are there to train , and have fun, but train and learn. There are no cunning contracts. You can buy tickets in 1’s  5’s, 10’s, 20’s and 50’s. You buy these when you come to book. We don’t have any sales people hanging around ( we are too busy having awesome fun teaching gymnastics)
Here is the full story behind our classes and here is how to book
Currently our classes are on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, so navigate to those days
You can also keep the kids happy by booking them into our Kids Gymnastic classes
