L-Sit Tuck Hold – 25,25,18,29,21 secs
Tuck Planche – 4,4,10,7,9,9,10,8,9,3,9,7 secs (89 total)
Having said I’d go back to 3x/week I ended up only training once this week due to socialising and not feeling up for it on the other day I was going to train. I opened with one set of L-Sit tuck hold, mainly to wake up my shoulders and abs. I then did all my tucks before finishing off the ab work. The cue I used was to actively pull the knees to chest and that worked well, also starting with my bum higher in the air so more of a forward lean. Finally, 2.5-3 mins rest instead of 2 mins allowed me to repeat efforts, as previous weeks I opened with a long hold then it got progressively worse.
The plan is to go slow and steady, adding a few seconds to either total TUT or individual holds until I get there.

Bit of a breakthrough today. I started with tuck planche so my abs and shoulders are fresh, used a higher hip position, and actively pulled my knees to chest as the main cue. I also noticed that 2 minutes was insufficient recovery time, and by extending it to 2 mins 30 I could maintain performance levels. The result was 8 sets of 8-10 second holds, valuable time under tension. #tuckplanche #calisthenics #roadtofullplanche
