Hi Everyone!

Today’s workout is focused on the core. This workout incorporates a lot of plank variations, because it is one of the best exercises for strengthening the core.

If you have problems with your wrists you can modify the workout by completing the plank on your forearm. Keeping your hand and wrist in a neutral position decreases the amount of pressure on the carpal tunnel. Another option, is utilizing stationary pushup bars or dumbbells to hold onto during your plank (as long as your wrist/hand form a straight line).

I planned on filming a new workout after work yesterday, but I came home insanely tired. I decided to go for a walk instead so I didn’t wear myself down even more.

I hope you all enjoy this workout!

*If the plank variations are to difficult, an alternative option is to hold a static plank. Choose a length of time that is challenging for you. As you build strength with correct form you will be able to progress to the more difficult variations.

    What type of device do you have that tracks your walking/running?? Like a Fitbit? Or what do you think is the most accurate? I thoroughly enjoy your videos and have been following you since early 2013. I just had my 3rd baby so trying to get back at it!
