Tuck Planche with Single Knee Drop – 4,3,3,4,3,5,5,6,6,6,6 secs
Tucked L-Sit – 30,30 secs
Raised L-Sit – 20,16 secs

Rather than drop both legs to get into an advanced tuck, I chose to let one leg drop on its own. The tutorial I watched stressed how much the abs are involved here so I plan to increase the volume I do.

A small breakthrough in technique, instead of initiating the transition to advanced tuck with my legs, I started by leaning further with my arms and used my leg position to counterbalance. I wanted to keep practising regular tuck planche because the longer I can hold, the stronger the base I have in which to try shifting to advanced.

Dying Roach – 3 x 50 secs

I’m feeling the consistency as my positions are more stable. I struggle a bit with my breathing because I exhale and then only manage to inhale in short bursts. Pleased to do a 15 second hold, I’m expecting to build quite quickly from here (1-2 seconds/week).
