I worked out at Curves this morning and did those planks tonight. 50/50/50/50.
3 sets of 90 on the ball.

Today at my strength training class we did 3 planks on a medicine ball for about 90 seconds each time. We also lifted our toes ("digging") part of the time. Killer!

Ooh, I HATE planks but I know they are so good for me! I'll start off (slowly, probably) tomorrow!

I couldn't believe how hard this exercise was the first time I tried it. I can barely do 40 sec on my front and that's it. I blame it on a C-section at age 40, but really my core has never been strong.

look planks up but basically it is when you are on your elbos and you are in a push up posistion and hold and count. I do 50 facing to the floor then turn to the right side and stack your feet and hips and on 1 arm bent at the elbo lift those hips and count 50. Flip t the other side and repeat 50 and just for S & G do another 50 on the front with out screaming "uuuuuuuggggggg" to loud. They are a killer. Adjust numbers to your fitness level. Did I say these are a real killer. I do think sparks has a video.

Plank is great. How exactly do you "do 100"?

WW gave me the tools and Zumba gave me the motivation and confidence to keep going. I'm happy with who I am now.

Anyone want to plank with me.
front/left/right/front
I have to do 2 fronts because 100 on the front is tough.
