I alternated between incline presses for sets of 5 and hanging L sit holds for max time. For the pressing, my sets looked like this:
70 kg x 5
80 kg x 5
90 kg x 5
100 kg x 5
110 kg x 3
I took a slightly narrower grip than I normally would and really tried to control the descent. It's been awhile since I last did incline pressing and I was happy with my strength overall.
For the L sits, I can only estimate my times:
On these I really felt that the limiting factor was my quadriceps. After the first 10 seconds each set they would start to cramp. Maybe I'm doing the exercise wrong, or I just need more isometric work. It's possible that the answer is a bit of both.
Heading to the countryside for the next few days with my Dutch friend and his family. Hoping to find some creative physical outlet while there.
