    I do those with every chin-up. Never knew it had a name. Thanks!
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    Same but in the up position I actually do bicycle kicks, kicking up high and out as slow as possible. Try doin that for 30 secs without going back down.

    Yep Yep, I also enjoy performing them during chin ups, pull ups, and dips. However the hanging L-Sit from a bar is much easier than the L-Sit hold on a set of parallel bars due to the extra upper body tension. Switching them up is awesome but be sure to do them all!

    Do them with flat hands on the ground and tell your triceps to stop their bitching.

    Might be concerned about your wrist flexors though. I avoid flat hand pushes wherever I can. Though it's pretty hard.

    @fpsjosh01: A great point, a lot of people have painful issues with their wrists during exercises like push ups, so performing the L-Sit on with their palms flat on the floor might also cause a similar problem.

    I've been a massage therapist for a while, and I work on a computer on a regular basis. Just keep your wrist extensors nice and strong! Rubber band exercises are incredible for your wrists.

    Don't forget post workout nutrition :-P

    Wait... what? care to elaborate a bit? I spend a lot of time practicing handstands so I put a lot of pressure on my wrists and purposely stretch them out (both forwards and backwards, also rotating as a warm up) and while at first I experienced some soreness the day after training I no longer do. I accredit that to getting stronger....
