Fitness training on gymnastic rings
The L-sit exercise is a great core strength hold, that really challenges the abdominals and develops impressive strength and endurance in the hips and triceps too. It's also an exercise that looks impressive to anybody watching.
Performing the L-Sit on gymnastic rings is more difficult that on the ground or using a fixed bar because you have the ring instability and support hold to contend with. To carry out the L-Sit on rings simply assume the support position with your legs bent at 90 degrees from the hips, so you are shaped like the letter ‘L’ whilst your arms support your bodyweight.
Your legs must be horizontal to the ground if you are performing the L-Sit correctly. To develop the skill and attain the 90 degree angle you can start by achieving a hanging L position which most people find easier to do. You can also try working one leg at a time - one leg is in the L position and the other bent. You can alternate between the legs until you have developed the abdominal strength to maintain the hold with both legs.
