    Me, too - today and yesterday.

    Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."

            Hardly Wink I've got a lot of remedial stuff I need to do...

              IMPRESSIVE CORE WORK! You guys inspire me!

               

              I did my 2 min of planks again this morning (do them in the evenings also). This time when I was in the forward plank position, I lifted one arm, extended it out to the side, brought it in to touch my core, and then put my arm back down. I did about 3 of these on each side. that was hard also!

                Try lifting both arms out at the same time...just to see what happens...

                  I'll bet! Was that in the forearms or straight arms position? Today I finally attempted a straight arm plank, and while I was able to hold it, the wrist that I had injured wasn't too happy, even using both arms... So no single straight-arm stuff for me... yet!

                    Seriously, I just learned about a variation called extended plank, which is the next best thing to the no-arms version:

                      no way could I do that one OM!  I was on my forearms when I extended one arm out. not as difficult as a straight arm, but definitely could feel the core tightening and stabilizing more.

                       

                      give it a whirl Mike. Tell us how that works out for ya Joking

                        Pretty cool.  I got in about 32 seconds before I decided that was good.

                              I went to a fitness seminar tonight and learned that I can hold onto dumbbells on the floor for straight arm planks instead of palms flat. So maybe I'll try that extended plank tomorrow. Maybe.
