Thanks y'all for your answers! I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who this happens to. I'll just keep holding it until "hopefully" the shakes go away. Maybe it'll take a 5 minute plank, lol! (totally joking....maybe)

Jen - yes, core-focused workouts are part of my Tues/Thurs routine, I am able to increase my time, but the "shakes" increase too.

I appreciate your feedback.

Thank you!

Yes, quite normal. Your muscles are working hard to keep you stabilized and balanced.

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

I agree that this is pretty normal. Are you doing these exercises regularly? Do you find that you can hold the position for longer and longer when doing them consistently, even if you're shaking?

i shake a lot too especially when i hold a pose for a while. Sometimes it is over 20 seconds and sometimes at 20 seconds. It depends on the hold and what exercises I was doing prior. My chiro told me its normal.

I get that happening sometimes if I'm holding a pose for a longer time than usual, but it's only when I'm pushing myself towards a new time goal. But you're saying that you've been doing these exercises for a while and you still start shaking after 20 seconds? Hmm...a conundrum then.

Okay,

I have always wondered about this, but I seem to never get a straight answer:

Whenever I do a "static" move such as holding plank or boat pose, my entire body just starts shaking like crazy. It starts at about 20 seconds in to the exercise, but I can usually hold it for about 45 seconds to a minute (or longer, depending on my breathing!) I am not new to exercise and core workouts (I am a ballet dancer and developing distance runner).

I am aware of my posture: I make sure my shoulders are directly over my hands and my body is in alignment (I check in the mirror). I also make sure I am recruiting the right muscles for the job - like making sure my spine is lengthened in boat!

Is this a natural thing? I feel like I have been doing these for years and have the same "reaction". Does anyone else encounter the "shakes"?

I appreciate any support y'all can provide! Thanks!
