- Front-lever holds
Now I must confess that I am no good in all three of 'em. I have a long way to go. While I think I can manage the beginner's progressions of L-Sits and front-lever holds (front-lever holds are a bitch!), doing handstands.. let alone handstand pushups give me the jitters.
With no spotter to assist me, the thought of tumbling over or not even being able to kick up to a handstand position is pretty much off-putting. Enter the TRX. It has definitely been one of my better investments (I am staring at my stability ball, sitting dormant on a chair while I type this). I tried doing a TRX-assisted handstand earlier this afternoon, and I am happy to report that I have succeeded.
Granted, my body is not totally upright; but I am definitely getting there. (No. That's not me in the video. Just so you know).
My confidence boosted, I tried doing some chin-ups. I haven't done chin-ups for a while. Most times I substituted with TRX rows.
I could only do a single proper chin-up. Egad! What the heck happened?
