  Just found an exercise while browsing around in SP. It's elbow planking on a roller. If you find'll see what I'm talking about (although I didn't have/use a foam roller). Edited this because i spelled a word wrong. :)

  WOW! Am surprised no one knows about planking. It's designed to strengthen your 'core'. Putting it as simply as i can: you use the floor as your space. You are in the basic push-up position except you lean on your forearms, legs straight out and you hold the position as long as you can. You'll feel your core muscles. Supposed to do this 5 times per day. There are several variations that are as hard (if not harder) than this 'basic' one.

    Ooh, that's a new term to me. Just curious, how do you do it?

Don't know if this helps at all...
