    Jumping in mid-month. New to group, definitely not new to planking. We had worked our way up to holding 6 minute planks at the end of our hour Pilates classes I was taking. Doing more cardio lately, less Pilates, so this will be a great group for me to keep improving my planks. Goal for month; at least 84 minutes.

    Feb. 14 : 3 minute high plank, 3 minute elbow plank

    Ok so I am using a 'set' this month:
    30secs straight arm plank
    15secs left side plank
    15secs right side plank
    30secs forearm plank

    That's 1.5 mins. Longer than I have held a single plank so far, but see how it goes. So I am logging as 1, 2 or 3 'sets' :) make it look a bit neater this month."

    And I have been sooooo lazy!

    01/02/2017 rest
    02/02/2017 lazy
    03/02/2017 lazy
    04/02/2017 2 sets
    05/02/2017 lazy
    06/02/2017 lazy
    07/02/2017 3 sets
    08/02/2017 lazy
    09/02/2017 lazy
    10/02/2017 1 set
    11/02/2017 lazy
    12/02/2017 1min20 forearm plank on knees in Pilates
    13/02/2017 3 sets
    14/02/2017 1min10 of straight arm plank (proud), 1min straight arm plank (wrists starting to hurt)

    Really can't seem to feel the love this month :/ need to get a move on for next 2 weeks!

    I have problems with carpal tunnel, which the 90 degree angle of a full plank irritates, so I use small hand weights to eliminate the angle at my wrist while planking. I also get bored holding a full plank for longer than 30 seconds, but I don't have much upper body strength, so I can't do many of the variations of a full plank - YET! I have found that I can add demi-push ups (feels like demi-plies for arms!) to change things up a bit: 15 seconds of straight planking, 15 seconds of demi-push ups then repeat. I am currently at 90 seconds twice a day!

    Try forearm planks, they are just as challenging as straight arm planks. To me, it puts more stress on your core than your arms than a straight arm plank anyway. Also there's nothing wrong with using the hand weights/dumbells to keep your wrists from hurting. I tend to do push ups sometimes using dumbell weights in the same manner for less stress on the wrists. I've been an IT guy and stuck in front of a keyboard for many many years so I have a light case of carpal tunnel as well.
