The first picture of the Training Feed!
I will use this section of my website, to upload pictures(and soon YouTube videos) of my progress with all the exercises I’m mastering.
V sit progression exercises
I first learned the L-sit(here is you can learn how to do it) and from then on, I started doing L-sit crunches and basically a lot of Pike stretches.
This stretch really helped me for gaining a lot of flexibility in my lower back and hamstrings. The book by Steven Low really helped me build my own workout routine. Because before the book I was training every day, until fatigued and I got some good and bad results.
But after reading the book, I understood that some bodies need more rest and also why we need it.
And at first I was kinda pessimistic about it, but I like to try and experiment new ways of training. But the results talk about themselves, I learned straddle front lever for 5 months without busting my ass training every day.

You can see that my right leg is not straight, that is because my right quad constantly cramped during all of my (3) sets. Next time I will try to stretch the quad more, even though I don’t think that would help because when I stretch my muscles get relaxed and become longer(stretched).
When I perform the V-sit my quads are being shortened from the contraction and that leads me to my disbelief in that, but I will try and next time I will post an update about it in this section of the blog.
I started a job and I found a new place to live. In it I got steel pipes that are going through the entire building. I use those steel pipes for human flags and dragon flags. The closest pull-up bar near me is 20 minutes away and with a 9-5 job I can’t afford that time.
I’m training almost every day at home. The strength workout is every other day, which most likely is full body workout. On the next day, I do some stretches, that include:
- Shoulder dislocates
- Wrists stretches
- Passive hangs
- Pike stretches
- Lotus positions
I do all of them for an increase in mobility and flexibility of those joints, especially the shoulder dislocates. I have rounded shoulders and this is one of the things I try to fix them. So far so good.
