who says life doesn't have a soundtrack?
I'm stuck at work waiting to hear if I have to respond to a "water loss" job. So...while I have to be here, anyway, I decided to get my planks done.
70 seconds forward + 4 seconds each side. Might be the only chance I get, today, to do them. Or, I could be going home in 10 minutes. I sure hope I'm going home!
4 seconds Mike? really??!!
Yea... 4 seconds...... http://www.audiomicro.com/tracks/dialog/767821
4:30 done, same set as yesterday.

Dang it! You were just waiting for me to make a mistake, weren't you?
40 seconds each side. I'll take my apples back...

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."
Reading this thread this evening makes me want to go do more planks... it's like a Pavlovian response, how weird... but I'll resist until tomorrow
I feel like that when I see someone out running, even if I've just gotten back from a workout.
I was running late this morning and didn't have a lot of time for planking.
120 sec - forward plank
150 sec - glute bridge
Without ice cream there would be darkness and chaos.
The yoga instructor gave me a few tips on my prone plank form last night... still have to work on the shoulder blades, but I think I've got the tailbone where it's supposed to be. That set was extra hard after too many downward facing dogs.
2 X 30 sec reverse plank, straight arm
2 X 30 sec left side
2 X 30 sec right side
3 X 30 sec prone on forearms
Rest day today, so I'm going to try a couple new core exercises I just found: the Turkish Sit Up and the Turkish Get Up. I'll come back later to report how I did, as well as to log my planks.
this routine is getting easier and easier to stick with. Heck I'll probably continue doing planks into Feb also!
Did a second set of planks last night for a total of 5:30 min of planks yesterday.
did my set this morning of 75 secs forward, and 45 secs on each side.
eta: I just watched those video's OM. Those are good. thanks for sharing them. I was trying to think of a challenge for next month and thought maybe we'd continue with core work but move into crunches, so those would be a good variation if that's what we do.
So I tried the Turkish Sit-up, didn't bother with the Get-Up, that was hard enough! Threw some preliminary push-ups into the mix today, and figure my total time of activity to be about 10 minutes. Off to swim now! 2x :60 prone 1x :45 prone hip/knee twist (12x) 1x :60 prone leg lift (:15 each) 1x :45 prone hip/knee twist (12x) 2x :60 side 1x 10 kneeling push-ups (:30) 2x 5 full push-ups (:30) 1x 10 kneeling push-ups (:30) 4x Turkish sit-up right (:60) 4x Turkish sit-up left (:60)
3 x 30 sec. front; 2 x 30 sec. sides
70 seconds forward + 40 seconds each side.
