    morrilin asked the Question: shoulder irritation during extended planks

    hey guys. Im experiencing some shoulder discomfort - not wrist - during longer plank series - especially when it involves compound exercises (ie, hydraulic lower body planks). What am I doing incorrectly? What's the most likely? No mirror handy.

    morrilin answered the Question: why am I gaining weight instead of losing it

    You're probably gaining muscle in place of fat, Muscle weighs more than fat, but it's leaner - more compact. So maybe check your measurements. Even though you've gained pound(s) you probably have lost inches. Hence that lovely tight, strong, no-jiggle feel!

    For the daily challenge, we put in the number of reps we complete in 60 seconds. But, I don't see where to enter which version of the challenge I am doing or what weights I a using for it. So, it's not as good an indicator of improvement as it could be. ..it doesn't recognize when you step up by a level of hardness. can you add this?

    morrilin answered the Question: I'm a Smoker, and I want to quit.

    I quit 2 years ago. I concentrated on the quitting and used MILD exercise at first, then increase. I was gentle with my body and my self and focused only on quitting. I gradually increased exercise as the days and weeks passed. I could not have done ignite and cigarette quit at same time. I would have failed at both. Check with doctor, of course, but I say, concentrate on quitting smoking first. That success will lead to others.

    morrilin asked the Question: Can i change my age group comparison?

    Hi... my summary box compares my workout or challenge results to the average for the age group 20-something to 35 years old. Im sure that's your largest group. But I'm 50 and I don't plan on ever stopping workouts. It would really help me to see comparisons for my age group. no-one offers it. i can't be the only one out there.

    morrilin answered the Question: Anyone using PGX Daily?

    i use dailyburn then add another 30min workout of my choice. if daily burn is high intensity i choose a secondary that's slower. if daily burn is more cardio, i may add 30 mins core or weights. summer months i'll add swim or jog

    i'd love to be able to choose a quick - 5 to 20 minute - core bonus for after the regular workout when I feel up to it.

    Hi Keaira. What's the best way for me to build my plank/core strength to become more stable (and so more effective and safer) in compound and single leg plank moves like those in the arduously wonderful hydraulic lower body?

    morrilin commented on natombomb's answer to shoulder irritation during extended planks:

    Thank you. I wasn't sure what to try to correct - you gave me solid leads. Plus pointing out that it's the single-leg planks ... I don't get irritation in regular planks. So double-thanks.
