Dip Bar L-sit Hold

L-Sit Hold
Edgar Artiga / M+F Magazine

The L-sit hold is a deceptively brutal exercise with benefits that go beyond merely the visual. Not only will this exercise help fill out your sleeves and chisel your abs, it will improve the health of your shoulders, help you with your deadlift, and build functional core strength as well.


  1. L-Sit Hold
    To perform an L-sit, position yourself between the parallettes, set shoulder-width apart. Using a firm, neutral grip, push your body off the ground, locking your elbows as if you’re at the top of a dip exercise.

Trainer’s Tips

  • Make sure to keep your shoulders down as you lock your knees, and hold your legs together tightly, forming a 90° angle with your torso.
