      Females would have an advantage from being lighter and having slightly more flexible hamstrings naturally, but males would develop the ab and hip flexor strength more quickly.

      Females are devoid of upper body strength. Most couldn't do a single one

    IST gets mad at calisthenics because its harder than lifting weights

    I used to do these along with v-sits and then go into handstand and back down again very slow and controlled, feet never touching the ground. But this was back when I was 125lb soaking wet skinny gymnast mode. I wouldn't say this is a feat of any sort of strength. Its more skill than anything

      I would argue the opposite, it's a pure strength feat, either you are strong enough to lift your ass or you are not, skill feats are things like handstand that require balance

        I mean, I can still do the L-sit even after I just got done with my workout. I can't do the v-sit anymore. I can also still go from L sit to handstand without touching the ground very easily.
        I would definitely say this is more skill based since I am now 165lbs but much stronger than my 125lb self. Also you can trade off balance with strength if you bend your elbows a bit during a handstand if you can't balance it right

      I think it's more like highly specific strength, because most people don't train their rectus femoris and abs in such a shortened position they're initially very weak, but this improves really fast. It's not a skill because it's not very technical, just the qualities you need to do it are very undeveloped in most people. Also obviously if you weigh more it's a lot harder, especially for all the squat enjoyers on IST who have really heavy legs.

        Actually yes, L sit isn't that hard. I kept thinking about my routine of going from L to V sit back to L and then to handstand and back down to L.
        I can still do L to handstand down to L but I also powerlift + weighted calisthenics. So that is why I thought this was more skill based since I was surprised I can still do this

    My arms are short to do this from the floor. I can do it on a bench though.
