    I have been thinking about doing this for a few weeks and have decided I'm going to do it.

    http://www.eatdrinkandbeskinny.com/30-day-plank-challenge-starts-october-1st/

    This is just one of the sites that explains it. I like this version w/ the increasing intensity.

    In addition to these 3 (1 regular and 2 sides) I plan on doing a reverse plank pose for the triceps


    Starting here
    http://www.yogaoutlet.com/guides/how-to-do-reverse-table-pose-in-yoga

    and building to here

    http://www.yogajournal.com/poses/2474


    This will only take a few minutes each day, no impact, start at your own level and see the actual progress as we are able to hold our positions longer and better no equipment, can do it anywhere. We can each post everyday how long we were able to hold the pose and what level we are doing and have some accoutabilty to keep us on track.

    Anyone up for this????

    Yes, 30 days, but I'm hoping it will be a habit by the end.

    I fell over when I did right side down. I am right handed - s.o it surprised me. Maybe I just didn't have the hang on it.
