The primary role of the "core" in real world activities is midline stabilization. The L-hold is nearly ideal for developing "core strength." Demonstrated here are four variations, each with slightly different demands.

The description of the L-hold being ideal for developing "core strength" seems overdone, while the "core's" primary role being midline stabilization seems lacking. Any other thoughts on this?

Man that Goal Setting Course looks awesome!

NJ, tell us why you hold these opinions so that we may all offer more cogent "other thoughts".

Regardless of NJ's musings, I was psyched to see this post- was just talking to hubby about how midline stability keeps my core strong and alleviates that strain on the lower back- so pertinent to me today. Thank HQ.

Comment #6 - Posted by: KellyO at December 28, 2012 7:17 PM

Got a sore wrist at the base of the thumb - about 2cm in length, anyone have any suggestions or had something similar ?

The last three WODS all need my wrist to be much better than it feels......its such a small thing but it really inhibiting me and frustrating me no end.....

Comment #7 - Posted by: DPL at December 28, 2012 7:34 PM

The L-hold is nearly ideal for developing "core strength." Demonstrated here are four variations, each with slightly different demands.

The question is what are the different demands?
Please answer, thanks. I would like to know for general knowledge.

Comment #8 - Posted by: SANTI at December 28, 2012 8:30 PM

@6 DPL Yeah, I've been having wrist probs since this summer. Cleans and F Squats hurt. Push-ups and burpees aggravate it too. Been taping for WODs and icing, stretching the wrist. Might try forearm massage, too.

On another note, does this WOD scream "do me wearing a 20# vest!" to anyone but me?

Santi,
Try them yourself. What do you experience?

@8 BG thanks for the reply. I do all the same stuff, plus the same for my elbow and shoulder. Guess I am going to have to do the unthinkable and rest for a week or two - oh no !!!!!!!!!!!!

I was just diagnosed with whooping cough and bronchitis. On 2 inhalers and meds. It's killing me not to workout. Rested Friday and will rest again today. Tmro I want to do a WOD. Any body been sick like this? Do you think training is safe.?

Comment #17 - Posted by: ART/M/44/5'5"/150 at December 29, 2012 5:29 AM

Training or working while being sick is not ideal as your body is telling you no based on the stress levels of what is going on. This is primarily based on collegiate and professional, expert opinions, like Dr. Gabor Mate's book, and others, "When the body says no".

As for the workout, about to do it here in the next hour or so.

Comment #18 - Posted by: John Ramos III at December 29, 2012 5:31 AM

Angiestone,
With both whooping cough and bronchitis, I think you would benefit from just holding off from working out until they are either resolved or nearly resolved. It's going to be difficult to catch good breaths, and by placing the additional stress of hard workouts on your body, it will probably take longer to get rid of both ailments. On top of that, if you happen to do your workouts in a public area, you risk spreading any infection to others. Whooping cough is easily contagious. In summary, I would suggest resting up.

Comment #22 - Posted by: Mike at December 29, 2012 7:42 AM

Tony B,

the data that gather from trying my self. L sit on the parallets I was able to pretty much accommodate my feet up and down as I wish while keeping my feet straight, using the rings on the side it is a little harder to bring the feet up so it was a little bit more fight, different kind of pain, harder to keep the legs straight and up, on the Bar it is hard to keep the legs up while the head is right under the bar so you have to fight a little more to keep the legs up, I don't know if I cheat it or not because for some reason it is hard to keep the legs straight up while the head is under the bar, if my head is on the back of the pull up bar i can get my legs up and down as i wish or hold them straight up. using the rings I am able to accommodate my legs and pretty much play with them in the L sit position up and down. I also found out that if you have a false grip, you would have a different kind of demand if you don't have a false grip. Pretty interesting, I would also imagine if you do Rope L sit climbs you would have a different demand.
I have being around since the before the summer in 09 and it amaze me how much I learn everyday from coaching, being coach and pretty much keep my self learning and being open to learn new stuff.

First crossfit workout ever. Scaled snatches to 80 pound. 17.32 and therefore Personal record... Pushups burned as hell, but Happy to have finished

Comment #26 - Posted by: joerg at December 29, 2012 8:51 AM

21:54. Push ups killed me and I have never done snatches before. I scaled the weight down dramatically to make sure I did not hurt myself and I know I was not going down in the squat part all the way. Very difficult, but I still powered through it and I am sure as I keep pushin through I will continue to be in better form and get heavier weight.

Comment #27 - Posted by: John Ramos III at December 29, 2012 8:51 AM

f/43/180/5'10"

1000m run
100 strict pushups
10 power snatches followed by overhead squat..75#

27:15

Good Golly. That took a while. Pushups were done in sets of 5 after about 30. They look good... but they are veerryyyy slow.

Then the snatches were an ordeal. I mean, I can do OK at them, but I need to start light and work my way up to a heavier weight. Going from pushups to snatches was pretty much impossible and I was unable to catch the bar in a squat so I had to squat after.

Quite frustrating!

Comment #33 - Posted by: jessica at December 29, 2012 9:54 AM

L holds and sits absolutely work the core but are virtually impossible if you have or had a labrum tear in the hip. I've found since having surgery to repair a torn labrum that I can no longer do these without significant pain. L sits with knees bent at 90 degrees is my acceptable alternative. Less strain on the labrum.

Did 135 lbs power cleans instead of snatches bc my left shoulder was not happy going overhead today. Otherwise Rx'd. Still very tough.

Comment #39 - Posted by: Bill M. m/48/5'3"/135 at December 29, 2012 10:22 AM

For me a wrist problem is usually technique, or a mobility issue up the chain (like elbow or shoulder). Stress in one area can indicate that another is not doing its job. For example, foot problems can be a result of tight calves.

Comment #40 - Posted by: MBorders at December 29, 2012 10:35 AM

L-sits are awesome but to increase that mid-line stabilization wouldn't you want to work outside of the sagittal plane of movement...maybe get some transverse and frontal plane involvement? Anyone dig what i'm sayin'?

Comment #41 - Posted by: krups at December 29, 2012 10:43 AM

hey #6,
check out mwod episode 145 about wrist. I had a very similar issue with my right wrist caused by catching a heavy clean in a bad position. K stars suggestions helped a lot !

Can't snatch deep so I did power snatch as deep as I could go. First official WOD. Need some serious ROM work for snatch/overhead squat! Still working out snatch. Hang power snatch is easier for me than a power snatch. Seem weird?

Comment #80 - Posted by: Scott at December 29, 2012 7:06 PM

When a WOD indicates Push Ups, are they chest to deck or hands release, or whatever you prefer? I find the hands release to be far easier for me, while my husband finds the reverse..... Any thoughts?

Comment #119 - Posted by: Ingomar W. at December 31, 2012 9:42 AM

I feel like I did well with my time, 10:10, but I wonder how other people approached their 100 pushups? Did some of you try to go all out and finish as many as possible before resting? Did that work? Any other approaches? I did 10 reps, rested for 10 seconds, but I am looking to improve on that time.

Comment #121 - Posted by: mas 55/M/150 at December 31, 2012 12:55 PM

I forgot to start timing until I was on about 30 Push ups. Real good. I ran on the treadmill at 10 for the 1,000m, so the time was about 3:48 or so. from 30 Push ups to the end of the WOD was 6:45(ended with 135 CJs). So I would put the final time between 11-13 mins.

Time: 10 min 41.9sec.

Tackled the push ups in lots of 10 to maintain form as best I could so that all 100 were done from toes instead of fatiguing to knees.

Really disappointed with the effort. Did 20 snatches, first 2, squat snatches I guess (a snatch with an overhead squat), then 18 power snatches. Got my form back on the last 4 power snatches, but had nothing left.
