L-Sits rock! TimBell has a good progression there. I found myself intuitively attempting these at the end of my dip sets. If you have some plates belted to your waist, hanging off the back, that helps with the leverage if you can't do them ungeared. When you can finally do them unassisted, that's a satisfying victory indeed.
Has anybody tried Windshield Wipers? That's where you do a V-Sit (for lack of a better term) and then "wipe" your extended legs from left to right. Core annihilation!
For the sitting L sit, I usually rest on my first knuckles with my thumb out of the way. But the fingers are not curled tightly, the tips lie flat against the wrist or fall open so they aren't strained. Sort of like how gorillas walk.

Hey, Tim, wanted to PM this to you, but I guess you're not accepting PMs:
So I was looking at your Jungle Fit Silverback training book and was wondering if someone starting at level 0 could do it? I am more of a weight machine girl. Can't do a pull/chin up to save my life, and can maybe manage 5 push ups. I can do Australian pull ups. that's about it. Would love to do some of the stuff you & Al Kavadlo do! Was just wondering if the Silverback could work for a big sissie like me?
