FEBRUARY Plank Challenge, Spidey style (2/1 - 2/7) (Read 37 times)


MM #5615

     I've messed up my pelvis and have sciatica-like pains down my right leg. I guess I'm just not made for doing anything that involves opening the hips, because mine open too much at the sacrum. So go ahead, mock if you must. Sad

    I don't even know what that means...

      I missed yesterday, so I guess that puts me out of the chalenge, but I'm still going to try to keep doing at least some planks on a daily or almost-daily basis.

      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."

        I don't even know what that means...

        What it means is that only one minute of 20 reps per day is enough to give me an overuse (or repetitive motion) injury. It's rather frustrating to be that fragile, ya know?


        MM #6177

          3x 1:00 prone forearm plank

          2x 1:00 side forearm plank

          1x 1:00 prone forearm plank (palms up)

          1x 1:05 glute bridge w/marching knees (20x)

          1x 1:05 single leg glute bridge (10x each leg)

          1x 1:15 supine double leg raise (15x)

          9:25 total

           

          No Spideys, no push-ups. Hoping for no more pain, too.

            Is anyone besides OM, Holly, Mike, me and I think Arf doing the challenge this month? wondering if others are but just not always checking in?

             

            I didn't do my 2nd set of planks last night. Busy online looking for a vehicle for us to buy. I hate vehicle shopping, although I guess the ease of internet shopping certainly makes it easier than it used to be.

             

            did my 3 min this morning though.

             

            sorry to hear you are having sciatica pain OM. I hope it goes away quickly!

              sorry to hear you are having sciatica pain OM. I hope it goes away quickly!

              Thanks. I stayed away from the knee-to-elbow movement and I'm not having any pain anymore. I mean, I knew that type of thing wasn't good for me, but figured I hadn't had any issues in so long, so why not try? Ugh, there's a REASON why I hadn't had any issues, ya think?? Lesson learned, indeed.

               

              Yeah, it does seem a bit sparse in here lately. <echo, echo>

                When I used to coach youth soccer and had only 2 or 3 kids show up, I still coached them...I wasn't going to quit on them just because the others didn't show up.  So, please...don't stop doing this challenge.

                  Nope, not gonna quit Mike! I need this year of challenges and the best way to keep me disciplined is if I know there is even one other person doing it too!

                   

                  did my same set of evening planks.

                    That was me today, plus stability ball crunches.
