Previous Exercise of the Day

Plank is akin of the traditional push-up. It is also a total body exercise designed to challenge the body through assuming a challenging position and maintaining it for a length of time. Procedure: Lay face down. Place your elbows directly under your shoulders. Curl your toes under - pressing them into the floor. Tighten abdomen as if tryin on a tight pair of jeans and roll shoulders away from your ears. Lift up so you are balancing on your forearms and your toes. Keep spine as still and straight as a steel rod.

*Hold for 15 - 45 seconds
Repeat 3 - 5 times.
