      Hip drops? I like to do those with rolling the knees in, for that extra crunch satisfaction Wink Lift, roll in, roll back, lower. Actually works you harder than staying lifted and just doing the knee rolls,

          In the women's running group on FB (Women Who Run The World), we're having a similar Plank Challenge, inspired by the one you've started here, Tammy. Here's yet another core torture exercise for you, the Scorpion Push Up. If you want to embellish it, you can try this under-and-over version (demo starts around 2:10), or add a Scorpion Flip after each rep. Or do both. Smile

            something that calls itself "Scorpion"  - yeah, I'm so all over that one! lol. I'll check those out. Thanks!

             

            did my 2nd set of planks last night and did another set this morning.

             

            :75 forward

            :45 left

            :45 right

             

            twice each day gets me 5.5 minutes each day. And it's really making a noticeable difference too.

              I don't understand a word you people are saying.  After working for 12 hours, today, I was too tired to do my weight work out...but I did my dang planks.  70 seconds forward...or prone...or whatever plus 40 seconds on each side.

                I agree, Mike. I'm learning a whole new language here!

                I was pretty fatigued after my workout this morning, so I kept my planking simple:

                1 X 120 - forward plank

                1 X 150 - glute bridge

                1 X 120 - straight-arm forward plank

                1 X 150 - glute bridge on stability ball

                    70 seconds forward + 40 seconds each side.

                      I think I remember seeing something about those scorpion moves being hard on the back........

                      ...or am I just getting old?

                       

                      Done today:

                      2X 30 sec right side

                      2X 30 sec left side

                      2X 30 sec reverse plank, straight arms

                      3X 30 sec prone

                              Still here, doing my 2.5 minutes.  Today I did 60 seconds of walking planks - anyone ever do those?  Plus 30-second forward and two 30-second sides.

                              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."
