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.
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?
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.
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.
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?
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.
