L-Seat Progression Pt.1

In this series, Coach Carl and Adam "the tall guy" demonstrate the L-Seat progressions.  In the first video, Carl helps Adam find his position for the L-Seat and walks through the tucked and 1-leg progressions to build up to a strong hold.

L-Seat Progression Pt.2

In Part 2, Carl demonstrates a quick drill using bands to help you get into the finishing position and build strength for the hold.

L-Seat Progression Pt.3

In this video, Carl demonstrates with Adam how you can build up the leg lifts for the L-Seat while seated to focus again on position and increasing stamina in your quads.

Mixed Seat

  • Hands on bars with knuckles facing out
  • Shoulder posted on top of the thumb
  • Point your elbows back by trying to turn your hands out
  • Lift legs up in front of you in with one leg in a tuck position and the other in a straight leg position
  • Make sure knees and toes are above hip level

Muscle Up Transition Progression Pt.1

In this progression video, Carl explains how to practice your Muscle Up transitions, from the highest point of your Pull Up to the deepest point of your Dip, by using the Dip to Upper Arm Support. This will help you focus on finding good elbow and active shoulder positions first, while you work up your wrist and Pull Up strength in other False Grip or No-False Grip progressions.

Positioning for Deficit and Parallette Handstand Push Ups

Handstand Push Ups on the ground may be performed with a number of variations and hand positions. However, once you increase the range of motion with deficit Handstand Push Ups, and/or decrease the base of support by using parallettes, this movement gets a lot more challenging.

In this video, Coach Carl discusses the optimal position to help you generate the maximum application of force for deficit Handstand Push Ups on parallettes. The key is finding the right width of the hand placement and get set up where your forearm remains vertical throughout the full range of motion, similar to the mechanics of a regular Push Up or Handstand Push Up on the ground.  The distance away from the wall is also important so you have room to globally extend into the handstand before touching the wall to create the appropriate tension in your body for a string finish without collapsing.  Don't stomp the wall with your heels at the top, kiss the wall with your toes!
