I got a bit disheartened at the session I had been doing and went off on a tangent.
L-sit to tucked l-sit to tuck planche – 4 x 5
Slow Scap Pushups – 4 x 8
I stuck with my tangent, this series of transitions has helped me so much so I wanted to get back to doing it. I was trying tuck planche push ups and not managing more than 2-3, which made me realise my base level strength could do with some work. I did some slow pushups with a retracted scapula at the top (rounded back) and these felt good (and tough!).

Slow Scap Pushups – 9,9,9,8,9
I briefly popped my legs out into a straddle and was pleased with the stability I had, possibly due to my new parallettes. I’m quite happy to just do this session every 5 days and see if I can make progress.

I added to the combo move as I’m quite stable in a tuck planche. From there I lowered into a tuck planche pushup and back, then returning to the sequence of tucked l-sit and l-sit. That doubles as pushup work but I still added in some slow scap pushups to finish.

Slow Scap Pushups – 11,11,9,8,8
I got ahead of myself with the 3 reps but I was doing two sequences back to back quite well. I also tried to lower into a straddle bent arm planche but it went horribly wrong so I won’t be doing that any time soon. I still feel like progress is being made but it would be nice to add in a straddle element.
Here is the single L-sit/tucked l-sit/tuck planche/tuck pushup combo. Another option is to progress this into a handstand, but being able to do sets of 5+ would surely help with my planche goals.
