Just wondering how I can teach my daughter (she is a 6 yr old, level 3) to do a pike hold. I think it will help her with many of her skills because she could use some help in the strength area. Not sure where to start.
the first half of the article goes through proper progressions of an L-sit. the ability to do this on floor also requires flexibility in the pike position and strength in the hip flexors and quads and hamstrings. if the hip flexors are weak/untrained, it doesn't happen. if the hamstrings are tight, you can't lift the legs at a 90 degree angle. if your abs are weak, you can't hold your legs at a 90 degree angle.
