Side Planks Illustrated Very Nicely!

I spent some time this morning looking at utube videos and fitness sites, trying to get some insight into the correct way to perform these side planks that I am having so much trouble with.

I found several, but honestly, the best picture I have come across so far is this one... in  in today's post on Life After Bagels.. Make sure to have a look. 

Morgan's plank pose in her heading is very impressive in itself, but scroll down a bit and see the one below the plank challenge logo.  Wow!

I know you will recognize Jill from her blog, One Tough Cookie and a Beer

So, it would seem my efforts are on the right track, I am just very bad at it.  I shall persevere.

We had a fun day at the golf course.  Beautiful weather, great company, good eats.  Gorgeous views.  Doesn't get any better than that.  And then a nice walk before supper.

I have a short run planned for the morning, tomorrow, and right now I am off to make some snacks... strawberries and yogurt.   There might be Nutella involved, too.


  1. Nutella rocks! Side planks are tough.. how long do you hold the position?
    Take care,

  2. I agree! Right now I can only hold a side plank for about 20 seconds. I certainly have lots of room for improvement.

  3. I think that is awesome.... Very inspiring!


Love it when you leave me a comment!
