    I have been putting this off for a few months now but I am ready to commit. I will start it tomorrow, April 1st to make it easier to remember what day I am on. Guess I need to do some before measurements!

    That is what my physical therapist wants me to do. You are right. It is not easy. You have inspired me to increase my seconds!

    Up until about 6 mo ago, I did a plank every evening before going to bed. It took me a year but I got up to 5 minutes... it was hard but you are right... the results are noticeable. I also did a 60 second side plank (each side), 50 crunches, 50 donkey kicks and 25 step ups. The entire routine takes only 10 minutes and I really increased my strength. I definitely gotta get back at it!
